Does a friend or family member rely on you for support?

If so, you may be a carer, which means that you can get support to look after the person you care for – and to take care of yourself.

You might be looking after your brother or sister, your partner, your parents, your adult child or someone else; they might have a physical or learning disability, a health condition, mental health needs, misuse drugs or alcohol, or have become older and frail. You might have been looking after them for years, or have only just started.

Whatever the situation, if you and the person you care for are over 18, then Carers Network can help you with:

• Carers Assessments
• Information and advice
• Social events and activities

If you are a carer and live in Kensington & Chelsea, Westminster or Hammersmith & Fulham talk to Carers Network today!

Carnival Village Trust is a registered charity dedicated to the the development of Carnival Arts.
As London´s development agency for Carnival Arts, we spotlight the arts, crafts and business of a relatively unsung art form in the UK, extending to its roots and broader culture. We have the background to do so and are well placed in the locality of Europe’s largest carnival.

With preparation and performance central to the artform, we also host venues in Notting Hill, West London. Carnival Arts and African Caribbean events add to a diverse programme from theatre, music and dance to comedy and film.
