Kingston Carers’ Network (KCN) is a local registered charity, providing independent information, advice, advocacy and support to people who care for someone living in the Royal Borough of Kingston upon Thames.
We support carers of all ages, including young carers aged 5 to 18.
We are also committed to ensuring that carers have a stronger voice, and so we offer a range of opportunities for carers to have a say in the way health, social care and carers’ services are run in the borough.
We represent our carers’ views across the borough to ensure that local decision-makers fully consider the needs of carers.
How we help carers?
KCN has developed a holistic approach to supporting carers of all ages by meeting the outcomes of the National Carers Strategy: –
Our funders include:
The Chamber Sharks took part the annual Rotary Dragon Boat Challenge on 16th July. An amazing 54 teams took part in total, raising an estimated £50,000+ for charity. Some really fast times this year and a thrilling nine boat final with only 1.7 seconds between 1st and 9th Boat. The Chamber Sharks may not have made the finals but a great time was had by all and most importantly it raised (and will continue to raise) important funds for Kingston Carers’ Network. You can still show your support for the team by donating here.
