Carers Support Groups (Coronavirus Pandemic)

We’re doing all we can to support you. Unfortunately we are still unable to restart our physical groups due to restrictions surrounding Coronavirus but we are working with Herts County Council and other organisations towards possible recommencement.

Meanwhile, we are running Online Carers’ Support Groups.  These sessions have a light-hearted approach and anyone is welcome to join. All that is needed is an electronic device with audio and video media such as a Laptop, Ipad, Tablet or Smartphone.

If you would like to join these sessions please email  to be included in the session invitation.

Carers Week 2020 - Read about what we did for Carers Week this year during the coronavirus pandemic.
Age UK Dacorum offers support to people living in the Borough who give unpaid care to a relative, neighbour or friend, where one of them is over 50.


If you spend time caring for someone and feel tired, worried, alone or frustrated and in need of some friendly, non-judgemental, practical and emotional support then Age UK Dacorum is here to help.

Our aim is to help you take control of your life and your situation so you can make decisions that are right for you. We don’t make judgements, we don’t make decisions on your behalf, we are simply here to help, if and when you need us.

We can:
• Provide accurate information and guidance on a range of issues from sitting services and respite care to Adult Care Service assessments for you and the person you care for.
• Help you to secure your financial entitlements.
• Inform you about the services available to help carers and how to access them.
• Provide information about leisure and social activities.
• Provide regular emotional support phone calls.

We offer help over the phone or one of us can come and see you at home, or meet you elsewhere – it’s up to you. Our service is free and confidential.
