Building on our success

For 25 years Carers Network has supported carers in Westminster. We have grown significantly in the past three years and now have responsibility for providing services in three London Boroughs and the City. Our income comes from a range of sources, in addition to the local authorities where we provide services. In 2016 it was £912,000. We currently have 19 full and part-time staff.

We provide information, advice, case work and support, social events, and break schemes. We ensure carers are involved in making decisions about all aspects of their caring role.
