The Carers Time Bank
Do you care for a child with a disability, someone elderly or disabled or with a mental illness or problems caused by drug or alcohol misuse? If you care for someone whose health or well-being could suffer without your help, you are a carer. You might need a break from your caring responsibilities from time to time so here at Westminster Carers Service The Carers Time Bank supports carers by giving them the opportunity to have a break when they need it so they can continue caring without risking their own health.
Westminster Carers Time BankÂ is the only time bank in London set up by carers forÂ Carers. Carers support each other and ‘earn’ credits to ‘spend’ on getting the help they need. They also meet regularly for social and recreational events. So if you are a carer living in Westminster, you can join – its free.
The time bank is supported by the Big Lottery.
