Carers Week 8-14 June 2020
We will be hosting a week of online activities for Carers Week, 8 -14 June together with partner Centre 404. Plan a short break from your caring duties to give one of our fun online activities a try. You can do this from home!
Carers Week is a national initiative which highlights the importance of unpaid carers, the challenges that carers face and recognition of the contribution that they make to families and their communities.
This year the Carers Week campaign in Islington will be taking place online. It will be launched with a special video, featuring the Mayor of Islington, Councillor Rakhia Ismail. More details here.

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.
Get involved with how services develop by joining the Carers Pathway Group.
You can find out lots more about our services and support for carers on this website and in our Factsheets or just give us a call on 0800 085 1141.
