Training courses and workshops for carers

Carers on a training course

Currently, we have no new training courses or workshops for carers planned as we are evaluating our carers’ training service. Please continue to check our website for further updates.

Don’t forget we have CarersLine, our ​confidential information and support service for carers in Bristol and South Gloucestershire. We make time for everyone who contacts us and understand the difficulties that carers face.

CarersLine is open:

Monday to Friday: 10 am – 1 pm
Monday to Thursday: 2 pm – 4 pm
(Closed on Bank Holidays)

0117 965 2200

An answerphone operates outside of these hours and your call will be returned when the helpline next opens.

Alternatively, use our contact form to receive a personal reply the same or the next working day.

“I am a carer for my mum, who has dementia and was in hospital with a stroke and COVID. Carers Support Centre helped me get through the initial period of adjusting to my mum’s condition and accepting it. Thanks to one of the courses I attended, I have learnt that I need to look after myself, so that I can support and look after my mum.”
