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.

Why not support us?

Every donation helps; whether it’s a one-off contribution like a legacy donation or a monthly direct debit.

Your donations can help us create new services and provide better support to our carers. From complementary therapies to counselling and training for carers, your help can go a long way.

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.

Working for Carers

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. Our training includes CV writing skills, interview techniques, as well as creating a positive approach to employment. We have several success stories of carers who have secured a job they love.

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.

New Wellbeing Package

Carers have full access to our services including the welfare benefits support, mental health workshops, social and educational events and training activities.

We help members take back control of their lives and improve their living standards by doing something for themselves. We have various payment schemes to fit your financial situation.
