Professionals

About you:

Are you a professional working with an adult or young Carer?

Perhaps you are a social worker, health professional, mental health specialist, teacher, or from another charity...

You may be working with the Carer in some aspect of their life, or perhaps you are working with someone who has a physical or mental disability or health condition?  If this is the case, please ask - there is likely to be an unpaid Carer in the background.

You will require permission from the Carer to make the referral or you may also provide our number so that they can call us direct.

About us:

We are an independent charity supporting unpaid Carers who live, work, or care for someone who lives or studies in the London Borough of Sutton.

We provide information and advice, as well as practical and emotional support to help make caring roles easier.  This includes specialist support for those experiencing end-of-life care and once caring roles end.

We do not differentiate.  Carers do not have to be in receipt of Carers Allowance, or care for a certain number of hours, or a particular type of care.   

We will talk to each Carer during registration to identify any immediate support needs and offer be here for any needs in the future.

SCHOOLWORK

The Young Carers Service (YCS) visit schools to inform staff about the sensibilities around being a Young Carer.  We help educate students about how  able to determine who amongst them is a Young Carer and practicing support, this is managed through presenting the challenges that Young Carers undergo whilst caring for another.

  • Deliver training

  • Deliver assemblies

  • Offer school drop-ins

  • One-to-one sessions in school

  • Attend coffee mornings/afternoons

  • Advise on Young Carers Peer Support set-up
