A safe, confidential space to meet with other carers face-to-face and online – to share information and provide support to each other.
Groups are a great way to connect with other carers, sharing knowledge and giving each other support.
Often external speakers attend Carers Support Groups.
Please find details of our carers groups below. We are currently running a blend of in-person and online groups, to suit your caring situation.
If you have not attended a group before and would like to, please contact CarersLine:
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.
Please note you are only able to attend a carers group which meets in the same local council area as where you live, Bristol or South Gloucestershire.
