Carers advice and support

There are over 24,000 carers in the London Borough of Newham, who help other people, usually relatives or friends, in their day-to-day lives. We have a range of resources available to help you become a carer, and to support you and those you care for, in your role. The links below will take you to pages on our dedicated Adult Social Care website where you can access a range of advice and information.
