Courses and workshops

Service update: Our training has moved online so carers with internet access can still attend sessions virtually. All Carers Support Centre courses and workshops for carers are free. Whether caring is a new part of your life or you’ve been caring for a long time, our online training will help you develop skills and confidence to support you in your caring role.

Online training will be delivered via videochat on Zoom. You can join the workshops using most devices with a browser such as Google Chrome, Internet Explorer, Firefox and Safari. A link and password ID to securely access the workshop, and a guide on how to use Zoom will be provided when your booking has been confirmed.


For further information and booking please use the online contact form, call Carmen Rodriguez on 0117 958 9988.

The courses and workshops also take into account the additional challenges which have arisen from the coronavirus pandemic. We have a rolling programme of tailor-made courses as part of our well-being services.  Each course runs for ten sessions in a small group of up to 12 carers. They are designed to inform you about all the help and resources available, give you the opportunity to share experiences, learn coping strategies and look after your own wellbeing.
