One of the chief objectives of Camden Carers Service is to develop a wide network of local voluntary sector organisations to ensure that carers can access support, advice and information available in the borough. Through partnership work and funding, CCS supports such organisations to identify people with caring responsibilities. Four groups and projects are currently funded:  


 Centre 404 

Centre 404 is a charity that offers friendly, reliable and person-centred support to people with a learning disability and their families in North London.
Centre 404 is working towards a world where people with learning disabilities and their families have the support they need to enjoy the same rights, freedom, responsibilities, choices and quality of life as people within the wider community.

The African Health Forum

African Health Forum

 The African Health Forum works to improve the quality of life experienced by all African communities, particularly people affected by long-term health conditions and their carers, by developing a robust partnership that builds on its members, ensures the delivery of holistic and responsive services, and facilitates achievement of excellence. The Forum also aims to raise awareness of caring within the African communities and try to reach those who may not self-identify as carers. Partnership work with CCS involves targeting carers not known to services, through the use of one-to-one and small group discussions with different communities, providing information on services and signposting them to CCS.

Henna Asians Women's Group 

HAWG

Henna Asians Women’s Group has been in the Kilburn area for more than 30 years, providing women-only services to both residents and new immigrants, in Bengali, Gujerati, Hindi, Punjabi and Urdu. CCS is working in partnership with Henna until March 2017 on a Valuing Carers Project for BAMER (black and minority ethnic and refugee) unpaid carers. The project offers culturally and religiously sensitive activities to carers. Speakers are invited to a social club to talk about topics like wellbeing, mental health and dementia. The main purpose is to connect BAMER carers with the community and with mainstream organisations. Hard-to-reach carers will be referred to Camden Carers' Centre for assessments. Henna also runs a buddy scheme; volunteers are paired with carers to help them feel supported. The volunteers help the carers settle into the club and encourage them to participate in activities such as meditation, massage therapy, social club, listening and advice, arts and crafts, and Bollywood dance classes.
