The countdown is on for Carers Week 2016!

This year’s focus is on building Carer Friendly Communities; communities which support carers to look after their family or friends well, while recognising that they are individuals with needs of their own.

To celebrate Carers Week we have a busy week of activities for Hammersmith and Fulham carers.

To book on to events and trips please call 020 8960 3033 / email

Monday 6 June we kick off the week with a trip to Chiswick House at 1.30pm. We will be able to provide free entry to the house – then, after your visit you can enjoy the gardens.

Tuesday 7 June we’ll be exploring The Thames on a River Cruise. We have a number of tickets available which enable
you to hop on and off the boats as many times as you like during the day. We’ll be meeting at Westminster Pier at 11am
where you can collect your ticket and we’ll depart on the 11.30am boat to Greenwich.

Wednesday 8 June we’ll be celebrating Carers Network’s 25th birthday in style, at the Beethoven Centre, W10 4JL.
Come along to join in the fun from 1pm. There’ll be tea and cake and Carers Time Bank members will be demonstrating
their skills – we’ll also be inaugurating the Great Beethoven Carers Bake Off!

Thursday 9 June we will have Advice and Wellbeing Workshops at the Mencap Centre, 65 Aspenlea Road, W6
8LH from 10.30am – 3.30pm. This will include a number of interactive workshops and a light lunch will be provided.

Friday 10 June finally – and like the River Cruise, back by popular demand – we will be organising a guided tour of
The Houses of Parliament. The group will be meeting at Westminster tube station at 9.30am for a 10am tour.

Booking on to Carers Weeks Events

  • Tickets for River Cruise and Houses of Parliament tour are prioritised on a first come first served basis for carers who did not go on these trips last year.
  • To ensure as many carers as possible have the chance to be involved, carers will only be able to book onto one of either the River Cruise, Houses of Parliament tour or trip to Chiswick House.
