1. Carers’ Week 2020 | 8th -14th June | Making carers visible

    This year’s Carers Week is all about Making Carers Visible – to services, to each other and to the general public. With the Covid 19 crisis further increasing the pressure and strain placed upon unpaid carers, it’s never been more important to raise awareness of carers.

    • Online public discussion events are being held from 5pm to 6pm on Wednesday 20 May and Thursday 21 May 2020 to give local residents an opportunity to find out more about proposals to improve adult inpatient mental health services in Lambeth and give their feedback – register to attend by emailing
  2. Karshare launched in London recently and has supplied vehicles to workers at St Thomas’s, Lambeth and Kings College to name just a few. It asks local people to pledge to lend their vehicle to others.

    For Health Professionals this can replace public transport commute, support community activity, help the distribution of medical supplies and support patient transfers.
