Day Trips

Here at Carers Gloucestershire we’re busy organising regular days out and events as part of our Time Out for Carers programme. We aim to provide fun days or evenings out, ranging from trips to arboretums to shopping trips away.

Below are our planned events – please give us a call on 01452 386283 or email us  if you want to find out more, or register your interest.

With all our trips, we are taking expressions of interest in the first instance.  In the event of over-subscription, places will be selected at random. Please note priority will be given to carers who are new to trips or those that have not attended a trip in the last year.
