Helping Carers to Care

The Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead (RBWM) value the contribution carers make in supporting the most vulnerable in our community and are committed to working with them and partner agencies to provide services which support and enable them to continue caring and have a life of their own outside caring. By providing unpaid care, carers enable people they care for to stay in their own homes and remain independent for as long as they wish.

If you are worried about getting in touch with us yourself then please feel free to have a family member or friend contact us on your behalf.

Please follow the link for Carers Contact Details.
