For Adult Carers

Carers services in Merton have transferred to Carers First, as of 1st April 2024.

We would like to reassure Carers that this change does not mean any loss of services. 

Most of our staff have transferred to the new organisation and so you will see many familiar faces.  Carers First do not intend to use our office space at The Vestry Hall, but they will be running activities from The Vestry Hall, as well as from a range of other community venues in the borough.

We are transferring all of our records of Carers who have had contact with us in the last 3 years.  This will enable our staff to continue working with Carers and the professionals who support them without you having to give any information again. 

If you are a Carer and haven’t had contact with us in the last three years, but wish to continue to remain registered with the borough’s Carers service you will need to register with Carers First.

Who is a Carer?

Unpaid Carers do a range of tasks to support a friend, family member or neighbour who could not cope without their support.

Life after caring

It can be hard to adjust to changes in your life when your caring role ends.
