An unpaid carer is someone of any age who, without payment, provides care and support to a partner, friend, relative or neighbour who could not manage without their help. This may be due to a physical or learning disability, a mental health condition, long term illness, frailty, addiction or substance misuse.
Three in five people living in the UK will become carers at some point in their lives; although caring can have positive and rewarding aspects, there are lots of reasons why caring can also leave you needing support.
That’s why we are here – to support the practical, emotional and social needs of unpaid carers living in the City and Hackney.
Please note: We are no longer at our office on Mentmore Terrace, London Fields but are delivering our services via telephone, e-mail, Zoom and in-person (when we can) in various community locations.
