Carers Network operates across three boroughs: Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham, and Westminster City Council.

We provide a tailored service to unpaid carers; supporting them to identify their needs and empowering them to make informed choices for themselves and the person they care for.

Core services include:

  • Information: Carers who look after someone aged 18 or over are offered a Carers Assessment, a support plan and information about their rights. We also have a quarterly newsletter and a monthly e-bulletin packed full of the latest information for carers.
  • Practical Support: Form-filling (carers allowance form only), advice, liaising with professionals, signposting and grant applications to other organisations.
  • Support Groups: These allow carers to meet, socialise and support each other.
  • Specialist Support: We have an enhanced level of support which may involve more in-depth casework and advocacy.
  • Financial Support: We can support eligible carers to apply for financial help towards items or services that will enable them to take a break from their caring role.
  • Consultation: We also facilitate Carers Action, a forum of elected carers which acts as a mechanism for statutory commissioners and providers to consult with carers in Westminster, and the Carers Forum for carers in Hammersmith & Fulham and Kensington and Chelsea.
  • End of Life Support: Our dedicated End of Life project supports older carers (aged 65 or over) who are caring for someone at the end of their life.
  • Carers Network’s Former Carers Project will support people whose caring role has come to an end.  It is set up specifically to provide advice, guidance and support to former unpaid carers as they explore the viable options available to them after their caring role has ended.
  • The Carers Time Bank enables carers to support each other through exchanging skills, knowledge and experience (please note that this service is not available in Kensington and Chelsea).
