Carer's Outreach and Local Support Groups
HAIL and Public Voice have come together in partnership to pilot a new Carers Outreach Service (external link) in Haringey. This pilot service is funded and supported by Haringey Adult Commissioning.
The service will consist of some innovative ways of reaching out to carers within our community. Our aim is to focus on “hidden carers” but will provide support to any and all carers locally who are providing care and support to anyone who is over 18.
Drop-in information and advice sessions for carers
Hail Carers (external link) holds drop-in sessions at Tottenham Town Hall where carers can get information, advice and advocacy on a wide range of issues that affect all carers. All carers are welcome to attend and no appointment is necessary.
