Have your say to support the City’s unpaid carers

City of London residents and workers are being asked to share their views on how best to support unpaid carers in the Square Mile.

The public consultation on the City of London Corporation’s draft Carers Strategy 2023-27 launched this month. 

It is designed to ensure unpaid carers in the City of all ages are recognised for their valuable work, given the respect they deserve, and are supported in their role.

An unpaid carer can be anyone, including children and adults, who looks after a family member, partner or friend who needs help because of their illness, frailty, disability, a mental health problem, or an addiction and cannot cope without their support.

Chairman of the City of London Corporation’s Community and Children’s Services Committee, Ruby Sayed, said:

“Unpaid carers are crucial to our community. They make sure that those who cannot look after themselves get the care and support they need.

“We are encouraging all residents and workers to give us their views so we can deliver the best support possible for the City’s unpaid carers.”

All feedback will be used to produce the final version of the Carers Strategy 2023 –2027. Residents and workers have until 3 May to complete the survey via the website at

The Carers Strategy will be considered by the City Corporation’s Community and Children’s Services Committee in June and published on the City of London website.
