About us

Our history


Now in our 24th year, Bath and North East Somerset Carers’ Centre is an established, successful and well-respected local Charity.


History

The origins of the Carers’ Centre date back to 1986 and the then Volunteer Bureau, which provided volunteering opportunities in the Radstock area.

In 1994 a carers’ support project was started and by 1999 this had become the sole purpose of the organisation, as national and local legislation began to formally recognise family carers. In 1996, the Care Network became a company limited by guarantee and in 2005 was accepted as a member of the then Princess Royal Trust for Carers (now Carers Trust).

Since 2010 we have been known as Bath and North East Somerset Carers’ Centre and remain a Network Partner of the Carers Trust.
