to the Dumfries & Galloway Carers Centre
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 community.

Dumfries & Galloway Carers Centre


The Carers Centre is based in Dumfries at 2-6 Nith Street. A drop-in service is available on Monday to Fridays between 10.00 am - 3.00 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. Please see the Who We Are section at the top of this page to find out who covers your area.
