Hubs – Action for Carers locations around Surrey offering information and support

Hubs – Action for Carers locations around Surrey offering information and support

Across Surrey we have 'Hubs' for carers to drop-in to meet our staff and get advice and support on all aspects of caring. We currently have 15 Hubs, right across the county, some open one day a week, some twice a month. Please come and visit!

County-wide ‘Hubs’ open for Surrey’s unpaid carers

We have multiple ‘Hubs’, located right across Surrey. These are ‘drop-in’ locations for Surrey’s unpaid carers to visit for advice and support.

At the Hub you can meet with Action for Carers’ staff and volunteers. You can get information and advice on your caring role and the support available, and also enjoy a cuppa and a chat.

Carer Practice Advisors (who work for SCC/NHS), whose role is also to ensure carers get all the support they need, will be attending many of the Hubs too, as well as guests/speakers from other charities and organisations.

Find all the upcoming Hubs

I have been a couple of times to the Hersham Carers Hub and hope to go again soon. I like the informality, and flexibility around times.

Surrey carer
Open to all

The Hubs are open to all family/friend unpaid carers, and are free simply to drop in, though organised events and meetings will also be held at these locations.

When are the Hubs open?

We have weekly Hubs, open one day every week. We also have ‘satellite’ Hubs, opening two days each month.

The Hubs are taking place in towns right across Surrey, so you should be able to find one near you.
