Ensuring carers in Lewisham receive the right support


Welcome to Lewisham Carers Information, Advice and Support (IAS) Service. We are here to work with carers to ensure they receive the right support and information at the right time, enabling them to continue looking after members of their family, friends and neighbours for as long as they wish to do so.


What we do

Your Voice in Health and Social Care (YVHSC) are providing the Lewisham Carers Information, Advice and Support (IAS) Service to support adult carers who have caring responsibilities for a person aged 18 or over living within the borough of Lewisham.


What is a carer?

A carer is anyone who cares, unpaid, for a friend or family member who due to illness, disability, a mental health problem or an addiction cannot cope without their support.
