Who are Carers’ Support (Bexley)
Carers’ Support (Bexley) is an independent registered charity who is supported by London Borough of Bexley and Royal Borough of Greenwich. We have a team of trained staff and volunteers who provide a wide range of information, support and respite services to local adult carers residing in the Bexley and Greenwich boroughs.
Are you a Carer?
A carer is anyone who provides unpaid care for a family member, partner, child, friend or neighbour who due to illness, disability, a mental health problem or an addiction could not cope without their support. The term carer should not be confused with a care worker, or care assistant, who receives payment for looking after someone.
Carers come from all walks of life and all cultures and can be of any age from children to adults. Many people don’t recognise themselves as carers and as a result can miss out on the various rights, benefits and support which may help them in their role. For many carers, caring can be a rewarding and positive experience, however, there are times when carers need extra support. Carers’ Support (Bexley) is here to help you if you are an adult carer. You can view our information video at the bottom of this page which will explain how we can help you. We also have information videos on Financial and Mental Health Support and the Carers Assessment.
Get in touch
I do look forward to the volunteers coming. It gives me the freedom to make choices, I can stay and catch up on jobs at home or go out, and it's a wonderful service.
It is reassuring to know when I go away on holiday, care is available. This enables my mum to stay in her own home which she prefers to do. I can relax when a volunteer is with my mum
The service has supported my children. If my children are happy then I feel happier and less stressed
Personally, It has enabled me to continue to attend Charlton athletic football club with my season ticket which i have held for many years and enabled me to have a grandson to accompany me.
