The invasion of Ukraine

At Harrow Carers when there is a need on humanitarian grounds we will do our best to support people no matter where they are. We are not collecting donations directly, but Harrow Council have compiled a list of organisations and appeals that residents might consider supporting. 

We are very excited to be launching our Archery club in April 2022

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.

Contingency Plan

contingency plan is a course of action designed to help in responding effectively to a significant future event or situation that may or may not happen.

Harrow Carers, Harrow Council and Unpaid Carers have developed a contingency plan for carers in the event that they are unable to provide care at short notice. Download your free copy for self-completion or contact us to have one sent to you in person.

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.
