Support groups and activities for carers

BSL Support

Training, activities and events

Many carers find that having an activity outside of caring is essential to their own well-being. It gives them a break from the demands of caring and helps boost their self-esteem.

Newhams Integrated Carers Support Service

Who are Newham Carers Community?

We are a newly commissioned service which is delivered in a partnership of Age UK East London as Lead, with Subco Trust and The Renewal Programme to provide support to carers and young carers across the borough of Newham. We offer free and confidential advice, information, activities and support to unpaid carers living or caring for someone living in Newham.
