Carers in Lambeth

Over 18,000 unpaid carers in Lambeth look after family and friends who couldn’t get by without their support. A carer is anyone who provides unpaid assistance to a friend or loved one due to illness, disability, mental health issues, or addiction. Caring can be rewarding but can also significantly impact carers’ lives. Lots of people might even be carers without realising it.   

Lambeth Carers Strategy

During Carers Week (10 to 16 June), we highlighted our new Lambeth Carers Strategy published earlier this year. The strategy, coproduced with our partners, sets out how we will continue to work together and includes our key priorities to help us ensure we provide the best support possible to our unpaid carers, who are invaluable to our community.
