Croydon Carers Centre.
Carers look after a partner, friend or relative who has physical or mental health difficulties, a learning disability, alcohol or substance misuse, or is ill, frail or elderly.
Croydon Carers aim to make a positive difference to the lives of unpaid carers in the diverse communities of Croydon by supporting and providing them with a range of services, support and recognition.
We offer information and advice, training, ongoing support and respite through our support groups, social outings and health and well being activities. We support carers of all ages offering advice and guidance in complete confidentiality.
Official figures show that one in eight of the adult population of Croydon is a carer, totaling over 33,000. 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 whether they are a child or adult who is elderly, ill or disabled, we may be able to help to you.
If you are a carer or know of someone who is, and just needs some support or friendly advice please contact our carers charity in Croydon town.
There is no fee for our personal assistance. Call us on 0208 688 7219 for practical, expert advice.
