Do you help to look after an adult family member, partner or friend?  If you are an adult living or caring for someone in Merton you may benefit from our wide range of services.  

Carers Support Merton offers a friendly and accessible one-stop-shop for unpaid carers in Merton.  We provide specialist information, advice and guidance on a wide range of issues related to caring, including carers rights, financial, housing, employment, future planning and risk/crisis management.  As a carer you can participate in our many activities and peer support networks, our specialist groups and events, or use our telephone support and counselling services to stay connected.  If you register with us we will keep in touch with you regularly to let you know what’s on.  

We can give telephone advice and information on any issue related to caring between 10am and 4pm Monday to Friday.  If we are unable to put you through to an advisor straightaway, someone will call you back.  

Carers Hub carries out formal Carers Assessments on behalf of London Borough of Merton to identify Support Plans for carers, which may include Carers Discretionary Grant or access to a Personal Budget.

We provide a Mental Health Carers’ Advisory Service to provide specialist support carers of someone experiencing mental health issues.
