We are in the early stages of setting up an exciting new model for early intervention and prevention services for anyone over 18 and young carers who live or work in The Square Mile.

Coming soon will be a new website which will include an up-to-date directory of services available to residents and workers in the City, new volunteering opportunities and much more.  In the meantime we are continuing with a number of existing services which you can access immediately:

 The City Care Navigator works with inpatients, social workers, GPs and other professionals and care providers to ensure a safe discharge from hospital and a lasting return home.  Closely integrating with our other City based services, the Care Navigator works closely with each patient to ensure they are accessing the services they need as quickly as possible.

Community Support Assessments: If you live or work in the City, are over 18 or a young carer, and would like some help to understand what services would suit your needs best and how to access them, our trained Wellbeing Co-ordinator can arrange an Assessment at your convenience.  Call 0203 957 9844 or email cityconnection@ageukeastlondon.org.uk with your name and preferred contact method and we will be in touch within 2 working days.

 City Carers Service has been created especially for unpaid carers and young carers resident or working in the City of London. We offer:

  • a friendly, confidential listening ear. At home, over the phone, via Skype or email, or at a monthly drop-in.
  • help to navigate services.
  • expert information and advice on carers rights.
  • support to help carers find ways to manage their caring role, and to find a balance between caring and the rest of life
  • a chance for carers to meet and share experiences with each other at monthly support groups, and to hear from local professionals
  • opportunities for training, social events, trips and activities.

If you would like to find out more, email Kate at kate.angus@ageukeastlondon.org.uk.
