Supporting unpaid carers, enhancing lives across London.
Our vision is that every unpaid carer in the areas in which we operate is recognised and leads a healthy, fulfilling life with control over their caring role.Why the community needs us
Unpaid carers make huge sacrifices, often putting their own life and wellbeing on hold to focus on the person they care for. We have a new project to fund a party in January 2020 that 150 carers will attend: https://localgiving.org/charity/carers-network/project/carers-party/. Your gift could treat an unpaid carer to a well-deserved celebration evening - with a delicious meal, live entertainment and fun with fellow carers. Show an unpaid carer you care and treat them to a rightly earned party!Our impact on the community
This night out can give an unpaid carer a well-earned break from their caring role. It can also help to break potential cycles of social isolation, helping carers connect with fellow carers so they can bond as a community. Bringing carers together in such social occasions builds rapport with Carers Network, so carers feel more comfortable approaching us for support in their times of real need.
Carers Network are recruiting volunteers for a variety of different roles including to help with fundraising; our End of Life Carers project; community outreach and events; befriending; social media; and health and wellbeing sessions
