For Carers’ Rights Day, Age UK Islington and its Islington Carers Hub team are running a special programme of events. It is for Islington residents who look after a friend, family member or relative, to get to know their rights as a carer. Sessions include carers rights when it comes to housing, financial support, taking a break and more. Plus information on support available in the borough for carers and those they care for.
As part of the progamme of events, our C&I Recovery College will be hosting a webinar on Emotional resilience. Emotional resilience is the ability to adapt to stressful situations, and cope with life’s ups and downs. The team will be talking about “Tea and Talk” - a new series of co-produced talks about mental wellbeing with the C&I Recovery College. The talks are designed to promote openness around mental health and to encourage people to start thinking about how we better address our own needs.

In an emergency
C&I has moved the service we normally offer in emergency departments to our 24-hour Mental Health Crisis Assessment Service, at St Pancras Hospital. The service will see people in need of urgent care so that they do not have to go to a hospital emergency department unless they have an urgent medical need. Emergency departments are under unprecedented pressure due to COVID-19 – the illness caused by coronavirus. We are urging people in mental health crisis to telephone our 24/7 crisis line on 0800 917 3333 or contact their usual community mental health team. If service users attend the 24-hour Mental Health Crisis Assessment Service in person we will see you but we urge you to contact the crisis line in advance for advice to ensure you are only leaving home when absolutely necessary.
