What do carers think? 

Computing for Beginners:

"Used a computer for the first time.  Found it enjoyable"; "Looking forward to the next course"


"All of it has made me feel wonderful"

Please keep checking our events calendar as new courses and workshops are being added all the time across the county. We know that having opportunities close to where you live is very important to carers and we take this into account when organising our training and events programme. We do have sessions that repeat in different parts of Hertfordshire to enable more people to access them.

If you wish to attend a course or workshop, but need help with alternative care for the person you look after to enable you to do so, then please contact us as we can offer support for this. You can also contact us to discuss travel options if you do not have access to your own transport. You can call us on 01992 58 69 69 (9am - 5.30pm Monday to Thursday and 9am - 4.30pm on Fridays) or email

All our courses and workshops are free to carers registered with Carers in Hertfordshire, contact us to register or for more details.
