Support and Wellbeing Line
Our Support & Wellbeing Line is run by our experienced Support & Wellbeing Workers on a rota basis
and is open to carers and professionals alike to register carers with us and offer advice and support.
Mon, Tue, Thurs, Fri: 9am – 5pm
Wed: 9am – 7pm

Currently, due to a high call volume, we aim to respond to a carer who is already registered with us
within 10 working days and a carer who is not yet registered with us within 15 working days.
It is recognised that those who care for someone with dementia, face increased isolation and difficulties maintaining their own health and wellbeing, as well
as remaining engaged with their own interests.

Develops and provides a regular programme of
day opportunities for people with dementia and their carers to enjoy together

their health and wellbeing
Maintain an involvement with local policy makers, consultation initiatives and developments which
affect older carers and/or carers of and people with dementia
Encourage carers to get involved in local developments, e.g. Dementia Action Alliance
The support worker for Mental Health Carers offers
one-to-one support, emotional support, Mental Health First Aid facilitating, training days, and presentations. In addition, the worker attends Carers’ Partnership Group meetings and Triangle of Care meetings.
Camden Carers offers a wide variety of services for mental health carers including a monthly support group. Joint working with other organisations is paramount and the worker is often located in the Community Mental Health Teams, attending CPA meetings in the community, and visiting mental health units in Camden and Islington and participating in ward rounds, as this enables both carers and service users to better communicate their needs. Triangle of Care is a very important ongoing training which encourages positive communication between professionals and carers and their families.
So if you are a mental health carer living, working
or studying in Camden and would like support,
please ring the office on 020 7428 8950.

Young Adult Carers
The support worker for Young Adult Carers supports young people, aged 18-30. They might be caring for
a parent, sibling, other relative, partner or friend.
The worker can offer one-to-one emotional and practical support. This includes helping to sort out problems (for example, around the caring role) or getting back to college, or into work or training; assistance with applying for grants for courses, practical items or activities and breaks away from the caring role; helping carers to access support, training or advice from other services or agencies, such as housing. It may be that a carer wants to talk through how they feel – space to do that can be provided – or a referral for counselling if more is needed.
If you are a carer aged 18-30, and would like to have a chat and discuss what support you need, please ring
our office on 020 7428 8950.
