Carers Week 2019
Monday 10 to Sunday 16 June
Getting Carers Connected
This Carers Week, we’re coming together to help carers get connected. Caring can be a hugely rewarding experience but carers often find it challenging to take care of their own wellbeing whilst caring. Its impact on all aspects of life, from relationships and health to finances and work, should not be underestimated. Caring without the right information and support can be tough, which is why it is important to ensure carers access support as soon as possible.
Islington Carers Hub will be hosting a range of FREE events and activities for Islington Carers from Monday 10th to Friday 14th June. Some events have limited spaces so booking in advance is essential. Click here for a copy of the Carers Week leaflet.
Looking after someone in Islington?
A carer is a person who provides support for a partner, relative or friend who is frail or disabled, or has a long-term illness, mental health issue or substance misuse problem, and who cannot manage on their own.
Does that describe you?
Are you aged 18 or over?
Do either you or the person you care for live in the London Borough of Islington?
If you can answer yes to those three questions, Islington Carers Hub is here for you.
You can contact us for advice, information and support.
We offer advice sessions in venues across Islington as well as by phone or email.
If you need help in evenings, at night or at weekends, look at the out-of-hours services in our borough.
You can meet other carers at our friendly and informal Support Groups
