CARERS RIGHTS DAY & HARROW CARERS ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING – 2021
Thursday 25th November 2021

Welcome Back To Face To Face Groups

We have added some excellent new support groups this summer. 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.

New Working For Carers Video

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.

Join our fantastic team

We would like to hear from you if you are ready to offer your skills to support our charity.
We are always looking for dedicated people who are willing to give up their time as a volunteer to help us offer the best service to our unpaid carers as well as those who would like to join our team on a more permanent role. Please have a look at the specific volunteering and full time roles we are looking for and contact us to register your interest.
