Support for unpaid carers

Islington Carers Hub provides support for unpaid carers who look after a friend, partner or relative due to an illness, disability or an alcohol or substance use disorder.

We provide a helpline, advice appointments, carers’ activities, regular newsletters and mailings and Carer’s Asessments.

To be eligible for support from Islington Carers Hub, the carer needs to be 18 years or over and live, work or care for someone living in Islington.  The person they are looking after needs to also be 18 years or over.

How can I refer a patient or client?

To find out more about our support for carers, see Support from us.

It is simple to refer someone for support. Please see below for our referral form and contact details.  If you’d like to discuss how we can support someone, get in touch.

Islington Carers Partnership Network

We work closely with a network of partners providing support for Islington carers and provide:

  • regular Islington Carers Providers Forum meetings
  • carers awareness training for organisations
  • an Islington Carers Hub monthly newsletter
  • an Islington Carers Directory with useful services for carers

To find out more, see our Islington Carers Partnership Network page.

Offering support to someone who might be a carer

Being an informal carer can be challenging, emotionally, physically and financially. However, people looking after a friend, partner or family member often don’t think of themselves as a ‘carer’,  so often miss out on valuable support.  For information about how to identify if someone is a ‘carer’ and how to go about offering support, see our professionals guide to Offering support to someone looking after a friend or relative.
