Help For Those Helping Others
Official figures show that one in eight of the adult population of Croydon is a carer, totalling over 30,000. Our aim is to provide advice and support to those carers, making their voices heard and raising their issues.
If you are looking after a relative, friend or neighbour who is elderly, ill or disabled, we may be able to help to you.
We provide among other things:
- Advice for carers about matters relating to caring, including the benefit system
- A telephone helpline
- Interpreter and language access
- Individual counselling and support groups
- Day trips by coach and minibus
- Outreach projects, including a mobile information service
- Exciting initiatives: click here to see the latest.
