You might be a carer

Do you look after a relative, friend or neighbour who couldn’t manage without your help?

If you provide unpaid support to a relative, partner or friend who is ill, frail, disabled or has mental health or substance misuse problems, you are a carer.
You might feel that you’re doing what anyone else would in your situation; looking after your mum, son, or best friend and just getting on with it.

We are your local carers centre

Care for the Carers is an independent charity and we have been supporting unpaid carers in East Sussex since 1989.

Our team of staff and volunteers can provide free practical & emotional advice – face to face, by telephone, or online. We can put you in touch with other carers, and offer a range of groups, training and events across the county.
