Welcome to Carers Support Merton

Working together to enable unpaid carers to lead a fulfilling life.

Who we are

Carers Support Merton is an independent charity formed in 1991 by a group of local carers. We exist to support unpaid carers from the age of 5 in Merton to stay well and live a fulfilling life.



What is a Young Carer?

We define a 'Young Carer' as anyone aged between 5-17 that is significantly impacted by the diagnosed health condition, disability or substance misuse of a close relative. This means someone they live with or see on a daily basis.
