Latest Updates

Welcome Back

We are happy to welcome you back to the centre and more face to face activities from 1st August 2021. Some of our activities will now be taking place at The Old Lyonians grounds at 74 Pinner View HA1 4QF. This wonderful space means we can meet in a socially distanced manner but still be social! We had a great time at The Old Lyonians during carers week and look forward to seeing many more of you there as well as at the centre.
In order to protect you and our staff, we ask that all those attending any face to face activity or meeting to take a covid test before they attend (or at least twice a week for very frequent attendees) and answer negatively to the now standard questions about covid symptoms, contact with those who have covid and travel abroad. Self-test kits are available from pharmacies free. Do call us if you have any queries about this.

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.
