All About… Harrow Carers

Harrow Carers is an independent voluntary organisation and the lead carers support agency in Harrow. Since 1996, we have developed a network of services and support for carers to reduce the burden and increase the life chances of unpaid carers who provide support for people in the community who are ill, frail, disabled and disadvantaged in many ways.

A Carer is any person who receives no pay for supporting a parent or relative, an elderly, physically and mentally ill or disabled person or persons experiencing substance abuse and those with terminal conditions.

Our vision is for all carers to have the choice, independence and wellbeing that they are entitled to whilst staying safe, being healthy, enjoying and achieving and positively contributing to the community.

Our overall aim is to improve carers  well being including carers access to financial benefits, social welfare and housing, counseling, respite breaks and leisure opportunities.

We also support young carers caring for parents or other family members by making sure that they are not providing inappropriate levels of care, and that they have the support they need to learn, to develop and to thrive.
