More than 4 in 10 of the UK’s unpaid Carers are men, dispelling the stereotype that caring is a female issue.
Wandsworth Carers’ Centre want to hear about the services, activities and support you would like to see us deliver.
As a Carer, what services do you access? Do you think there are enough services that appeal to male Carers? Are there barriers that prevent you from accessing support?
Please take our online survey to help us improve our services. We want to hear from YOU! Click the link below which will take you to the survey:
Richmond and Wandsworth Councils have been awarded funding by the Local Government Association (LGA) to explore how digital technology can be used in Adult Social Care. In Richmond and Wandsworth, we are examining how digital technology can be used to help unpaid carers.
This funding forms part of the Social Care Digital Innovation Programme which is split into two sections. We are currently in the first of these, the Discovery Phase, during which we are conducting research on how digital technology can help carers and building a prototype to test with users. If you are an unpaid carer you can help us by filling in our questionnaire, providing feedback on how digital technology could help you and informing the design of our digital tool so that it assists with the challenges carers face in Wandsworth: https://haveyoursay.citizenspace.com/wandsworthasd/617ff74b

The Proud Carers was set up in order to provide LGBTQI carers of people with dementia with an opportunity to meet with people who are going through the same challenges; members of the same community, possibly of the same age bracket, people who understand their challenges to the full.
We aim to provide participants of this peer support group with a safe space to explore their feelings, thoughts, and sometimes pain. This will be a non -judgemental environment, hosted by a facilitator at the Albany Trust, a charity that championed LGBT rights, freedom and mental welfare from its foundation in the late 1950’s.
This is a voluntary service, free of charge that aims to champion all members of our community, particularly in an age when the mature tend to be forgotten.
If you would like to join us, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call 07950 289612 for more details.
Our first meeting will be on Sunday 4th March from 1-2.30 PM, looking at meeting monthly to start with.
The address is The Albany Trust, 239A Balham High Rd, London SW17 7BE
Have you heard about GP online services?
GP online services are about giving patients the ability to access their GP surgery via the internet
Did you know? If the person you care for wants to give you access to their GP information, as their Carer you can help them to:
- Book and cancel appointments with their doctor
- Order any repeat medication they might need
- See detailed information help in their GP record including medication, allergies, illnesses, test results, and immunizations.
You can access GP online services on a computer, tablet or smartphone, using a website or an app. You will still be able to phone the surgery or call in, this is just another option that you might find more convenient because you will be able to do these things outside of normal surgery hours.
