There are seven million unpaid carers in the UK and over the next 30 years this number is expected to increase by 3.4 million (almost 60%) with three in five of us becoming a carer at some point in our lives.

Carers Support Merton (CSM) is a charity set up in 1992 for the sole purpose of providing free and independent information, advice, advocacy and respite to the many carers in the London Borough of Merton.

A Carer being anyone who provides unpaid support to a loved one. Carers can be of any age and may be looking after a relative including husband or wife, friend or neighbour.

The very nature of caring - of being there for a loved one facing ill health or disability - means too often people don’t at first, or sometimes ever, identify themselves as carers and, therefore, miss out on support.

Without the right help and support caring can have a devastating impact – carers can quickly become socially isolated with their physical and emotional health, work and finances all hit hard.

We can help unpaid carers in many ways but in order to do this we need your support.

   Some ways you can help?
  • Through donations,
  • Sponsoring our newsletter
  • Allowing us to fundraise in store
  • Taking part or sponsoring fundraising events
  • Organising your own fundraising event on our behalf.
