Carers Hub

"Do you support someone with an illness, disability, mental health problem or addiction, that relies on that support? If so, who supports you? That is where Lambeth Carers Card can come in.

The Lambeth Carers Card is an avenue of support available to unpaid carers aged 18 +. Through this scheme, we link informal carers with information about what is going on for carers in our community. As well as contingency planning for emergencies and free digital resources. Designed to make caring a little less stressful and a lot more organized.

Check out our animation here, or sign up via www.lambethcarerscard.org.

Lambeth Carers Card was at Gracefield Gardens for the Autumn Advice Fair and it was great to be out in the community.

We are keen to reach more people in Streatham organizedso if you host a local group or attend one that you think members would be interested to find out more about Carers’ Hub Lambeth or Lambeth Carers Card.

Do get in touch we’d be delighted to come along, whether that’s online or face to face.

Lambeth Carers Card is provided by Carers’ Hub Lambeth and MYsocial.

The government updates on Covid have made it uncertain whether it is safe for us to interact and be sociable, which has led to some tea party’s being canceled.

However, our popular call companion service is still running.
