Do you look after someone who needs help due to an illness, disability or old age?

If so, we can help.  

 

Carers' Information Day

Thank you to everyone who took part in Carers Week and attended our annual Carers' Information Day in Croydon at Fairfield Halls. It was fantastic to see so many carers finding out what support is available to them. We were delighted that The Mayor Councillor Wayne Trakas Lawlor was able to attend and pledge his support for a carer friendly Croydon. 

Carers Support Centre

Carers are welcome to drop in Monday to Friday, 10am - 4pm, for information and advice.
