Do you look after someone who can't get by without your help?
If the answer is yes, have you told us that you are a Carer?
If you are an unpaid Carer who provides care and support to a partner, relative, friend or neighbour who wouldn’t be able to get by on their own, we’d really appreciate your answers to our carers questionnaire . Your answers will tell us how we can best support you as a carer, both now and in the future. Please hand your paper copy of the questionnaire to reception or click here to complete the questionnaire electronically.
Carers Cafes and Coffee Mornings
Did you know that our surgery has a Carers Champion and hosts regularly Carers Cafes and Coffee Mornings? To find out when the next Café is, please ask at reception.
Local Support for Carers
Croydon Borough Council have lots of support mechanisms in place for Carers in our area. Croydon Carers Strategy (PDF, 246KB) is a useful document for anyone who is a Carer in Croydon and outlines how to access support so that our Carers are cared for.
The Carers Trust is a national organisation that also supports Carers, for further information on how they can help, please click here.
