Welcome to Wandsworth Carers’ Centre

Wandsworth Carers’ Centre is a registered charity and limited company that has been providing support to unpaid Carers in Wandsworth since 1995.  Wandsworth Carers’ Centre is the lead provider of Carers Partnership Wandsworth.

Calling on all unpaid carers to take a survey on what support you need in your caring role!

Carers Trust has launched a survey of unpaid adult carers to find out what support unpaid carers need from government. The survey also asks how social care reform could support carers more effectively. The findings of the survey will help inform a Carers Trust campaign to improve the future support available to carers from the government.

Please spread the word with any unpaid carers you know to make sure as many unpaid carers as possible take the survey. The survey is live and will run up to 18 October.

Our vision is a society where Carers are recognised and valued for their contribution and have choice and control that enables them to care, to stay healthy, and to lead fulfilled lives.

Our mission is to improve the quality of life for Carers and people affected by Caring responsibilities.

Our values are:

  • Integrity & honesty
  • Transparency
  • Respect
  • Accountability

We aim to provide a service accessible to all. If English is not your first language we have staff who speak the following languages. If your first language is not listed below please contact us and we can organise for a interpreting service to be used.

Hindi, Punjabi, Gujarati, Urdu, Sylheti, Bengali, Vietnamese, Cantonese and Spanish.

We’ve put together some resources to help you during these difficult times

You’ll be able to find information about help available in the community, recipe ideas, keeping connected with friends and family and more.

Exciting news, we have received funding from Carers Trust to run two new projects

Connecting Carers Services

We would like to support you to get connected with the ever growing virtual world. With the impact of Covid-19 meaning that services are running a lot of their support via digital platforms we want to ensure that our Carers are able to still access these services. We have recently been awarded a grant from Carers Trust to provide 25 Carers with internet for a year and 22 Carers with a new Tablet. We will also be running monthly Digital workshops to support you with your new technology and answer any questions you may have. If you have been struggling with your current device or if you are unable to access online services because you do not currently have internet or a device to access them through.

To find out more about the Connecting Carers scheme and how you could access the free internet or a free tablet device please contact us on 020 8877 1200 or email info@wandsworthcarers.org.uk

Planning for Tomorrow

Planning for Tomorrow is a 6 month project offering workshops and social activities to bereaved Carers over the age of 60. We will be exploring life after caring and the paths Carers might want to take.

In addition to these workshops, we will host a range of monthly social activities.
