Supporting Unpaid Carers
Looking after someone who couldn’t manage without you? We Care for you!
Our services are for unpaid carers, that’s anyone who provides unpaid care and support for people in the community who are ill, frail, disabled, disadvantaged or have a drug or alcohol dependency.
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.
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.
A 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.
