Camden Carers offers information, advice and support to unpaid adult carers (18+) living, working or studying in Camden, or caring for someone who lives in Camden. Camden Carers is also the gateway to a wide range of services provided by other local organisations and agencies working with carers in Camden.
Our priorities are to:
• Offer help and advice to carers • Identify new carers needing support
• Give carers a voice in design of local services:
In light of the current Covid-19 outbreak we would like to update you about our services at Camden Carers at this time. Following government recommendations, we have taken the difficult decision to temporarily suspend all of our in-person services until further notice. This includes groups, activities and face-to-face meetings. We feel that this is the best way to safeguard the health of carers, those they care for and our team of staff.
We want to reassure you that we continue to provide support in other ways. We are currently offering a telephone and email based service and group activities via ZOOM (an online chat/meeting platform) and we are looking at developing other services in response to the ongoing situation and to carer's needs.
We know that this may be an anxious time for carers and the people they care for, so wish to assure them that Camden Carers is still here for them despite these changes. We are calling carers to provide Support & Wellbeing checks and encourage them to contact us should they have any questions or concerns.
Whilst this office is not currently open for visits, all phone numbers and emails remain the same and are the best way of getting in touch.
Thank you for your understanding during this challenging situation.
If you think you may have COVID-19 please follow the advise given by the above organisations or contact 111 or your GP.
