We are a charity supporting adult and young Carers, a Carer being anyone who provides unpaid support to a loved one. Carers can be of any age and may be looking after a relative including husband or wife, friend or neighbour. We work across Lincolnshire, South and North West Kent, Medway and Waltham Forest.
We provide emotional and practical support, advice, information, guidance and offer statutory carers assessments, training, events, social groups, short break respite, activities trips and more.
You can contact us by calling our Carers Hub on 0300 303 1555 where someone will be available to take your call. Our Carers Hub team are available Monday - Thursday 9am - 5pm and Fridays 9am - 4:30pm. Should you need require more urgent support outside of these hours, please see the links below for contacts in your area who operate at other times.
