Waltham Forest Carers Association
If you look after a relative, partner, child or friend who couldn’t manage without your support due to illness or disability, then you are a carer.
Carers in Waltham Forest can access free information, advice and support from Waltham Forest Carers Association.
Waltham Forest Carers Association is an independent charity offering:
- Welfare and benefits advice
- Advocacy and help with social services
- Support groups
- Trips and activities
- Massage and yoga
- A bimonthly Newsletter
- A listening ear
You can request a referral to Waltham Forest Carers Association from reception staff at Lime Tree Surgery. They can also provide you with a Carers Pack full of useful information, and will make sure your doctor knows that you are caring.
