If you are caring for someone in Croydon, it's really important to get the information and advice you need to support you in your caring role. If you want to talk to somebody in person, over the phone or by email, please contact us. Our team of advice workers can talk to you about your situation and we may suggest talking to one of the specialist organisations that provide advice surgeries at the Carers Support Centre. Current surgeries cover mental health, legal rights, employment support, welfare rights, special educational needs (SEND) and EHC Plans. See our What's On guide for details.
To keep in touch, sign up to our newsletter and e-bulletin. If you're short of time, go to our at a glance directory of services to find out all the national and local organisations that might be able to help. If you've got a bit longer, read our How To... A Guide for Carers in Croydon factsheet series which guides you through all the information you need to know as a carer in Croydon.
If there's something specific you want to know, look at our frequently asked questions which answer carers' top queries, including how to ask for a break, who is entitled to Carer's Allowance, how to find the right care provider and much more.
We have helpful information for specific caring groups such as parent carers and young carers, as well as those who are new to caring. Key topics for all carers such as money and benefits, health, carers' rights and how to get help in an emergency are all covered in this website.
