Free Respite Care

Over the next two months, Harrow Carers would like to fund free respite for Carers in Harrow to relieve the effects of the pandemic. A pilot scheme has been introduced and we are currently offering 7 hours of free respite to the first 40 Carers to be taken during the months of February and March 2021.  

To apply simply contact our friendly staff at the Centre, register if you have not already done so, and we will put you in touch with the Homecare team on 03300 88 2224 where one of our friendly staff will be able to discuss the process with you further.

Working From Home

As we enter another lockdown, we will be closing our centre to all non-staff members. We hope everyone stays safe during this time and takes all necessary precautions.

The centre is now only open to visitors by prior appointment. If you need to use the centre in anyway please email us at  admin@harrowcarers.org for booking details.

Vaccination for Unpaid Carers

We got good news! It has officially been announced that carers who receive Carer’s Allowance or are the main carer of an elderly or disabled person whose welfare may be at risk if the carer contracted COVID should be included in Priority 6 alongside people with underlying  conditions. 

This is fantastic news for carers especially after a challenging year!

 

New Support Groups Now Live

We have added some excellent new support groups right before the year ends. Support groups are now available for parent carers, cancer carer, dementia carers and those caring for a partner. Lets go through the year supporting each other! 

Help with your health and well-being

We take a holistic approach to support.

We run workshops, clubs, counselling sessions, advisory services and other activities. We aim to make you feel better. We help you with stress management, mindfulness and well-being to boost your confidence and positivity.

We not only help you get back into work, but also care for your well-being and mental health.

Our experienced advisors in the Working for Carers Programme are dedicated to helping you become more confident and find a job that fits your caring schedule. 

Homecare Service

Caring for someone is mentally and physically demanding.

You may need additional help or some downtime from your caring duties. Our fully trained Care Support Workers can step in to support you as much or as little as you want, whether it’s occasional help or something more regular.

Check out our carers’ guide

As a carer there is lots of help, advice and support available, the problem is knowing where to find the information, this guide will outline your rights as a carer and give you details, information and guide you to where you can get practical help and support in Harrow.

New Wellbeing Package

Carers have full access to our services including the welfare benefits support, mental health workshops, social and educational events and training activities.

We help members take back control of their lives and improve their living standards by doing something for themselves. We have various payment schemes to fit your financial situation.
