Online Support Group
The Carers Support Group is where you can meet other Islington carers, share tips and how you’re feeling! It’s also a great place to get advice and to meet members of the Islington Carers Hub team.
Next Online Sessions
All Carers Support Group – Wednesday, 25 August from 10.30am-12pm.
For this month’s support group, we’ve organised a presentation from Working for Carers who are going to join us from 11-11.45am to let you know more about their service.
Working for Carers is a London-wide project that supports unpaid carers, aged 25 or over, to move closer to employment, and training. Carers can access free support designed to explore and meet their individual needs (support and advice is currently delivered remotely).
Because of the Covid-19 Crisis the carers support group will take place online via Zoom. Contact us via 020 7281 3319 or firstname.lastname@example.org to register and receive the Zoom link.
Digital Support/Support Getting on Zoom
We’re all on a digital journey! Getting an email address, getting access to the internet, booking GP appointments online, all require an investment of time and an open-ness to discovering new ways of doing things. With this in mind, we’ve created a series of digital guides, specially developed to help people to get the most out of technology.
If you need help joining a group, contact us via our helpline 020 7281 3319.
Carers Wellbeing Support during Coronavirus Outbreak
We have made the very difficult decision to temporarily suspend our face-to-face support groups and pathway meetings until further notice. We would like to reassure you that Islington Carers Hub will still be supporting our carers and that we will continue to provide you with up to date information and guidance.
Our support groups are a chance for carers to get together. The groups are friendly and welcoming. Please contact Islington Carers Hub if you would like to find out more before you come along.
