What is this? As part of running the health service, the Secretary of State can request that providers of services, such as your GP, must provide data.
It is estimated there are over 19,300 adults in Hackney providing care for a relative or friend. Carers do an amazing job, and have the right to be supported. You do not have to wait until you are struggling or there is a crisis before you ask for support. The earlier you get help, the more difference it can make. We provide support to adult carers Hackney.

Support for Carers
Caring for someone can be very isolating. Support groups can help you cope with caring responsibilities, meet other people in similar situations and feel less isolated. The groups allow carers to seek practical and emotional support and up-to-date information from a member of our team. Carers are welcome to pop along to any of the group meetings, where refreshments are available in comfortable surroundings.

Help for carers looking after a loved one
If you look after a partner, relative or friend who is disabled or ill due to physical or mental health, you are a carer, even if you don’t think of yourself as one. Find out about the emotional, practical and financial support available to you.
Carers: help and support
You can get help and support if you're responsible for looking after someone who has a disability, is getting old or has become ill. This can range from practical help to make day-to-day life easier to benefits like Carer's Allowance.
Caring will affect us all at some point in our lives. We’ll be here for you when that happens. With your help, we can be there for the 6,000 people who start looking after someone each day.
