Just under two weeks to go until National Carers Week...
It's early this year!

 Please scroll down to see the latest calendar of Sutton events
(and please keep an eye on our website for updates).

We are particularly excited about the launch of the
London Borough of Sutton Carer Creative Arts Display and new Banner, the Mayor's Reception, and our Wellbeing 'Open House' event where we will be opening our doors until 8pm to all Sutton Carers and colleagues.

You will also see more detailed information about upcoming events such as Sutton Parent Carer Forum's annual 'Carers' Lunch' and the
Mental Health Trust's 'Carers Picnic in the Park'.

Our colleagues over at St Helier Hospital will be ensuring hundreds of information packs go out, too.

We may even be hosting a government VIP visit....

All events are free!

What are you planning to do this Carers Week?

We'd love to hear from you, our local Carer partners, and organisations who support Carers. 

Perhaps you could run a staff networking event for employees who juggle their paid jobs alongside their caring roles, to make them aware of the support available to them - or even run a training course for staff to help them better understand and identify unpaid Carers in their everyday roles.

Perhaps a coffee morning to thank Carers you already know would be a nice gesture? We would love to hear from Carers with ideas, too.

Please let us know your plans by emailing
We look forward to hearing from you soon!
