Supporting unpaid carers in the borough of Lambeth
What are the benefits?
Working in partnership, Carers’ Hub Lambeth and My Social are delivering the Lambeth Carers Card scheme. The Lambeth Carers Card connects unpaid carers to helpful information and resources including:
Your Lambeth Carers Card flags up ‘I am Carer. Someone depends on me’ and includes space to add your emergency contact details. This means if something happens to you, people will know who to contact to help look after the person you care for. You can also use our emergency plan template, flyer and tips, to help put an emergency plan into place. In your welcome pack, you will receive your card and emergency planning resources.
