Are you looking after a family member, partner or friend?

There is support available across the borough for the hundreds of informal carers providing support for loved ones in Camden, many of whom are facing extra pressure during the COVID-19 crisis.

  • Visit the Carers UK website for information on what to do if you’re worried about your situation at carersuk.org
  • If you or the person you care for is over 55 and needs support accessing food, Age UK Camden is offering emergency food parcels. Contact them on 020 7239 0400
  • Meet other carers for supportive virtual chats through Mobilise – a group of carers coming together for an ‘online cuppa’. Join Mobilise for free at mobiliseonline.co.uk/cuppa

If you have any urgent concerns about providing care, please contact Camden Council’s adult social care team at adultsocialcare@camden.gov.uk or on 020 7974 4000 (option 1).
