Mission Statement

"Our mission is to make a positive difference to the lives of unpaid carers in the diverse communities of Redbridge by providing them with a range of services, support and recognition."

There are 27,000 carers in Redbridge, around 10% of the local population.

 Knowing that services are locally available at RCSS, and that we are there to help and reduce many problems faced by carers, is very important to them.

Carers provide such a vital role, and without them the health and social care system would collapse in Redbridge.  This economic contribution amounts to an estimated £344 million.

The economic value of the contribution made by carers in the UK is £132bn a year.
