Richmond Carers Centre

Description

Richmond Carers Centre is a local charity supporting adult and young carers living in or caring for someone living in the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames. We offer confidential advice, information and support free of charge to all carers over the telephone or in person by appointment at the centre. The advice offered covers many topics from navigating adult and community services to managing a care situation and carers' health and well-being. We are the lead organisation on the Carers Hub Service, which consists of services specifically for carers delivered by 6 local organisations and can signpost you to the correct organisation for advice on matters such as finance or housing. 

 
 
We provide services for:

Young carers and sibling young carers (aged 5-18)
Adult and young adult carers (aged 18 and above)

Carers must live or care for someone living in the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames and can be caring for a child, adult or both. We support all carers in the Borough, regardless of the care need of the person they care for.
