Working for Carers activity calendar South and Central London

The Working for Carers project supports unpaid carers to return to work. The programme is available to carers in London who are aged 25 or over, who have the right to work in the UK and are not in employment.

 

The project is led by Carers Trust and delivered by its network of 24 partners across London, and is jointly funded by the Big Lottery Fund and European Social Fund.

 

Carers Lewisham is the Hub organisation coordinating the Working for Carers activity across Bexley, Bromley, Croydon, City, Islington, Lambeth, Lewisham and Southwark. Details of planned activities in the coming few months can be found below:
