Carer's guide

Get advice, information and help

There are various places you can go for help and support if you want to make a difference to you or the person you care for, like:

  • local voluntary and community organisations
  • your GP or health centre
  • a faith or community leader

You might want information about your health, housing, money and benefits, help with caring, or other things that are important to you.

Many carers find it useful to talk to other carers. Amongst other things, Kingston Carers’ Network might be able to help and put you in touch with other carers you can talk to as well as offering an assesment.

How we can help

We can give you information about organisations that can help you. We might be able to look at your situation in more detail by offering you an assessment.

To find support organisations that could help or be of interest to you please visit the Connected Kingston online support directory
