There were smiles all round as charities supporting carers in Camden celebrated landing millions of pounds in funding.

A partnership formed of three charities – the Camden Carers Centre, Crossroads Care Central & North London and Centre 404 – has been awarded £2.1million by Camden Council and NHS Camden to provide carer support for the next three years.

Cake and balloons came out as the organisations came together to launch the Camden Carers Service scheme at the Camden Carers Centre in Kentish Town Road, Kentish Town, on Monday.

Its main aims will be to offer support and advice to Camden’s 17,000 carers and to identify new carers.

Chris Hickey, chief executive of Camden Carers Centre, said: “We want to express our sincere gratitude to Camden Council and NHS Camden, for continuing to support local organisations to deliver services to carers by promoting better co-operation and partnership, with a clear vision for a more integrated service.”
