Who do you care for?

Barner Carers works with different partners across the Borough to make sure both you and the person you care for are accessing the necessary services to improve your general health, wellbeing and quality of life. Learn more about existing organizations below.

 

What are you concerned about?

Being a carer often impacts other aspects of people’s lives. Carers are frequently worried about their finances, juggling the caring role with work and/or study, finding appropriate accommodation for their families. Carers may also experience feelings of isolation and loneliness. Barnet Carers strives to enable carers to achieve positive outcomes in life. Learn more about how we and our partners can help.
