Support for Carers

Being a career is an honourable and fulfilling task, that 1 in 10 people in East Sussex do. However, it can still be difficult for the careers, so there is support available for those who need it.

Care for the Carers provides services to people who are caring for  family members or other people they are close to. They can offer counselling, information, advice, befriending and activities for carers. They are based in Eastbourne but still offer services throughout the district. They also run a Young Carers Service for carers aged 8 to 18 offering 1:1 support to help them manage their caring responsibilities alongside their education and social lives. For more information contact them on 01323 738390 or visit their website at Care for the Carers
