Carers Strategy 2019

Do you provide care for a family member or friend?

Why do we want your views?

Do you provide care or support to someone? We want to hear from you!
 
Merton Council are developing a new strategy for supporting unpaid carers in the borough. This strategy is being produced in partnership with carer representatives, SW London St Georges Mental Health Trust, Merton CCG, Healthwatch Merton, Carers Support Merton, Merton Mencap, and Alzheimer’s Society.
 
The new carers strategy aims to raise the profile of carers across the borough and improve the services and support available to them. Therefore, we would like to know more about your experiences as a carer and the impact caring has on your life and wellbeing.

Come to our engagement workshops!

In addition to this survey, we will also be holding engagment events for carers in Merton.

  • Wimbledon Guild: 20/09/2019 at 2pm - 4pm
  • Merton Civic Centre: 23/09/2019 at 6pm - 8pm

...we need your help. Did you know, demand for our welfare services increased by 13% last year with over 2,000 people turning to us for help in their time of need? Demand continues to grow as times get tougher and budgets are cut for many services across the borough. Help us to continue this vital support.
