The Carers' Information Service - informing carers in Croydon

About the Carers' Information Service

The Carers' Information Service provides information, advice and support to unpaid carers in Croydon looking after someone who needs their help due to illness, disability or old age. We run the Carers Support Centre in Croydon town centre, the one stop shop for carers in Croydon. The Carers' Information Service is part of The Whitgift Foundation and supported by Croydon Council. 

Am I a carer?

A carer provides unpaid, informal support to a family member, friend, partner or neighbour who needs help due to illness, disability or old age. You do not need to be registered, provide full-time care or receive Carer's Allowance to be a carer. There are over 33,000 carers in the London Borough of Croydon alone.
