to the Dumfries & Galloway Carers
We provide information, advice and
support to anyone who cares for a
relative or friend. We also aim to raise
awareness of the needs of Carers and
the contribution they make to care in
The Carers Centre is based in Dumfries at 2-6 Nith Street. A drop-in service is available on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays between 9.00 am - 4.00 pm so there is not always the need to make an appointment. However, if you do need to speak privately with a staff member, it may be best to call first. You don't need to have a specific question or problem to see us, just drop in for a chat and a cuppa!
If you have issues with access, i.e. cannot use stairs, we can offer appointments in our ground floor room in Dumfries. In other areas, we can arrange a suitable convenient location to meet with you.
What if I live outside Dumfries?
The Carers Centre service is provided throughout the region and we have Carers Support Workers based in Wigtownshire, the Stewartry, Upper Nithsdale and Annandale & Eskdale.
