Getting Carers Connected logo from Carers Week 2019

Carers Week is an annual awareness campaign which takes place in June.

It celebrates and recognises the vital contribution made by the UK’s 6.6 million unpaid carers – people who look after a relative, friend or neighbour who couldn’t manage without them.

Carers Week 2020 dates have been announced: 8-14 June 2020!

Carers Week 2019's theme was Getting Carers Connected. See our information about how carers can get better connected online.

Each year, Care for the Carers, together with its partners, hosts a range of events around the county to celebrate Carers Week and recognise the vital contribution that carers in East Sussex make to their families and communities.  

Check back on this page in the run up to Carers Week 2010 to find up-to-date details of events and services within East Sussex to celebrate the tireless hard work of carers in the county.

Thanks to everyone who got involved with Carers Week 2019. See the pics below for a little reminder of the fun we had celebrating carers in East Sussex.
