Online Support for Unpaid Carers in Islington

Are you one of the thousands of people in Islington looking after someone regularly? Perhaps you care for a parent, partner, child, sibling, neighbour or friend? 

We're here to support you in your caring role. We work with Islington Carers Hub and the Council to provide a range of free online services to support you, in addition to what is already available.

Connect with other carers

We’re by carers and for carers. This means that community and support from other carers is at the heart of what we do. You can connect with carers through our Facebook Group and meet other carers on our virtual cuppas. We use all of this to inform our weekly email support, so that we’re always addressing what’s important to carers right-now.
