A Carer is anyone who provides unpaid support to family or friends who could not manage without this help. Carers can be adults or children and often juggle work, school or other commitments alongside their caring roles. The variety of tasks that a Carer fulfils can include: practical household tasks, personal care and/or emotional support. The term Carer should not be confused with a care worker, or care assistant, who receives payment for looking after someone.
If you are providing unpaid support to someone due to their mental or physical health, disability, illness or substance misuse issue, we are here to support you in your caring role and to help you stay well, too!
Sutton Carers Centre supports unpaid Carers who live or work in the London Borough of Sutton. We provide advice, information & emotional support, help with benefit forms/accessing funds, counselling, breaks e.g. complementary therapies, support groups, and much more.
If you are a Carer, we want you to enjoy well-being as well as gain satisfaction from your caring roles so we will support you with any potential challenges that you may face. We also work with other organisations to ensure that you are recognised, respected and that your views are taken in account when planning services.
