Supporting Unpaid Carers
We care for unpaid carers by providing support, advice and training.
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.
