Do you look after someone?
If you look after a family member, friend, partner or neighbour then you are a carer. And if either you or they live in Lambeth, then we are here to support you.
There are lots of ways the Carers’ Hub team can help you. Sometimes the hardest part is knowing where to start, but we can help you with that too.
We’ll begin by giving you a call to find out about your situation. You may just need some information, in which case we will send you what you need via email or post.
You may be offered a one to one appointment with a member of the team. We can meet you at your home, our offices or a suitable community setting.
We will use this appointment to explore any challenges that you are facing. We’ll then work alongside you to create a support plan that is tailored to your needs, and we'll help you put it into action.
If you look after somebody living with dementia, a learning disability or a mental health condition, we run specialised peer support groups that you can attend.
'I find the support very important. I can feel listened to, not feel judged and release my feelings in a safe environment. Not having to explain in great detail, because they understand.'
There are lots of ways we can help you...
We are setting up a monthly meet up group to be held in community settings across the borough.
This informal group will be open to anyone over the age of 18 who is a carer.

Peer support groups
We run monthly peer support groups and forums, allowing you to share your experience of caring, make friends, and develop new skills. Different carers face different challenges, and that’s why our groups are specialised. We run groups tailored to dementia, mental health and learning disability carers.
Additional sources of support and information
There are lots of sources of information and support available in Lambeth. We have included a few which you may find helpful.
