Carers Assessments

The adult social work team can give advice and offer you a carer's assessment. This is done so they can evaluate the best possible support that would most benefit you.

They will consider the different ways that caring affects your life, and work out how you can carry on doing the things that are important to you and your family while fulfilling your responsibilities to the person you care for.

We will work together with you to agree on a support plan that sets out how your support needs will be met. The support plan will include an individual budget showing the cost of meeting these needs.

To refer yourself or someone else for a carers assessment contact / 020 7332 1224 (9am - 5pm, Monday to Friday)

Talk to our City Connections Wellbeing Officer

As a carer, it is important that you take care of our own health and wellbeing. Our City Connections Wellbeing Co-ordinator offers a friendly, confidential listening ear and can talk over the phone or meet you anywhere in The City or at our carers groups. We can help you:

  • To navigate services.
  • To access expert information and advice on your rights as a carer.
  • To find a balance between caring and the rest of life.
  • To meet and share experiences with other carers and hear from local professionals.
