What is SWiSH?
SWiSH is for anyone living or working in Harrow aged 18 years and over – those looking for help for themselves as well as carers and staff in local organisations. It can offer information or advice about a wide range of local services, including where to keep fit and well, manage finances, join social groups, look for work, start a course, access help with housing or welfare benefits or apply for a personal budget.
What does SWiSH not offer?
SWiSH does not offer financial advice, legal advice, advocacy, 1:1 case support for welfare benefits and housing, but it can provide information about where to find this help. You can access information from SWiSH in a number of ways via phone, email, website, events, bulletins and one-to-one sessions. Click on the images below to find out more or to refer yourself online.

How does SWiSH relate to the Care Act 2014?
SWiSH has been commissioned by Harrow Council to provide a local Care Act 2014 Information & Advice Service. From April 2015, the Care Act 2014 introduced huge changes to social care services and many new rights for local residents, including a right to information about types of care and how to access them. You can download a summary of the Care Act 2014 or an easy-read explanation.
