Carers Support Merton
Carers Support Merton is an independent charity formed in 1991 by a group of local carers. We have been through a number of changes since then. We exist to support unpaid carers from the age of 5 in Merton to stay well and live a fulfilling life. We now have 15 staff and 8 trustees. Staff and trustees come from a diverse range of backgrounds and professions. There are currently 9 volunteers involved in supporting regularly across the organisation from administration to counselling.

1. Action Plan
1. The National Dementia Declaration lists seven outcomes that the DAA are seeking to achieve for people with dementia and their carers. How would you describe your organisation’s role in delivering better outcomes for people with dementia and their carers?
2. What are the challenges to delivering these outcomes from the perspective of your organisation?
Dementia Friends and ChampionsMembers of staff will become Dementia Friends. To help roll this out, one member of staff will attend an induction to become a Dementia Champion so they can carry out the sessions.
We will continue to build and maintain strong relationships with local organisations involved in dementia support, such as the Merton Dementia Hub, in order to ensure the best outcomes for service users.
High Quality ServicesWe will continue to provide a wide range of high quality services for carers in Merton For more information and to find out what’s on, please visit www.csmerton.org
