Carers Week – Carers Biographies

Read about the experiences of three Islington carers caring for family members with dementia – the challenges, the rewards and the support that they received in their carers journeys.

Carers Week – Virtual Information Stalls

During Carers Week, we would normally have had a host of organisations come to a launch event at the Islington Town Hall. They would have a stall there with information about the support they provide to Islington residents. This year we invited them to include an outline of their services for our online Information ‘Stalls’.
