How we can help
The team are here to support unpaid carers living in Lambeth, or caring for someone living in the borough, during this difficult time by offering:
Wellbeing calls to check in with adult carers, and with young carers and their families
A monthly programme for adult carers of peer support groups, social activities and training, which is currently being offered via virtual groups.
Virtual catch ups and group activities for Young Carers and Young Adult Carers, to connect, check in and have fun together.
