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 reserve your place for 2021, please book on to your preferred course using this website, or contact our team to discuss your options by telephone on 020 3096 7895 or email us support@dementiacarers.org.uk

Please note we require a minimum number of attendees to run our courses. If this minimum is not attained, the course will unfortunately have to be cancelled. We will aim to give at least two weeks’ notice of any intention to cancel upcoming course dates.

 

We are currently unable to offer any places to professionals or agency carers

As a charity we do not make a profit. It costs us £125 per person to deliver our one-day courses, including lunch. Therefore, we invite course participants (or their employers) to donate to the charity on completion of the course, if they are able to. 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.
