Below you’ll find details for our three-day courses for partners, family and friends caring for someone with dementia

In the interests of safety, and in accordance with the most recent government guidance, we have decided to temporarily suspend the delivery of our face-to-face courses. We aim to return to deliver these courses when it is safe to do so, and we will continue to ensure that all people affected by cancellations have the chance to attend an alternative date in the future. We are grateful for your understanding, and we apologise for the inconvenience these cancellations may cause.

As we are unable to run our face-to-face courses, we have introduced a range of live online learning sessions covering a wide variety of topics.  Each session lasts between 1 hour and 1.5 hours and the groups are kept small so that everyone has the opportunity to discuss and ask questions. For more information and to book your place, please see here.

We will also continue to provide supportive and practical information through our Virtual Carers Centre and on our Facebook page.

To speak with a member of the team, email support@dementiacarers.org.uk or call us on 020 3096 7895.

As a charity we do not make a profit. It costs the charity £650 per person to deliver our three-day course, including food and accommodation. We do not want anyone to be excluded from our services so we are not charging a fee for our courses. Therefore, we invite course participants (or their employers) to donate to the charity on completion of the course, if they are able to. A donation of £5 pays for a coffee break for a carer, £15 pays for a carer’s lunch and £300 pays for an expert course facilitator for a day. All donations, big or small, make such a difference. You can also donate using the donate button at the top right corner of this web page.

 

Our courses are constantly developing, and we are committed to providing support for specific communities. We will be releasing dates for upcoming courses tailored to different groups, but please get in touch if you would like to talk to us about your particular needs and how we might be able to help.
