Is this environmentally friendly?

I’m really not sure why CCTV camera’s are in the garages, it’s not stopped fly tipping! If anything it’s worse.   I don’t call this progress and looking after the environment.   Nothing is being done to prevent this.  See More

Event Description

Many Golden lane residents help to look after a neighbour, spouse, family member or friend who needs your support. The person may have eg a short-term or long-term health condition, disability, frailty, substance misuse or a mental health condition.

Did you know items such as picking up shopping, being a listening ear, picking up prescriptions, taking a person to appointments, helping with meals/ paperwork etc all come under the banner of being a "carer". In 2014 the government passed the Care Act, in which you have certain rights that local councils, businesses and our City Corporation needs to meet.

Most residents think of a carer as a paid carer worker in a blue uniform. Without realising, the term carer is for those who are caregiving not paid to do so.

CoL has a contract with City Connections (since 2019) to meet the needs of City residents/City workers who also have a caring responsibility.

Here at City Carers Community, a resident group, we started in April 2020 to highlight the needs of caregivers/unpaid carers in the City of London to ask if the needs are being met with adequate support. Similar to if we lived a mile away in our neighbouring boroughs.

24th November is National Carers Rights Day. ... rights-day

The following events have been compiled by City Connections. I noticed they weren't in the recent the Golden estate newsletter, therefore I am sharing it here. We, City Carers Community, will also be hosting two Zooms Thursday 24th & Sunday 27th at 7.30 pm Open to all to join.
