Carers hubs

Carers hubs

Our carers hubs offer opportunities for you to meet other unpaid carers, have peer-to-peer support or professional support from one of our advisors, enjoy relaxing activities and hear from local speakers. You are welcome to attend with the person you look after. You don’t have to stay local and can come along and meet us at any of these events.

There is no cost to join a carers hub and refreshments are provided.

If you are attending a hub for the first time, please contact us to make sure that it is running as normal as occasionally dates and venues change due to trips and activities, or holidays.

We also offer a programme of learning opportunities for adult carers and parent carers to enable you to feel more confident in your caring role. Sometimes these are part of a carers hub, others are one-off sessions and some are online. There are a range of session lengths from short, bite-sized topics to longer part-day sessions, so there should be something to suit all.

Make sure you sign up to inside news to hear about the learning opportunities and stay updated on all that is happening.

To find out about our opportunities, including online and face-to-face meetings, please see our list of events and carers hubs.
