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.
