Join us at locations across East Sussex to learn more about carers.

Care for the Carers is providing a free programme of Carer Awareness Training as part of our Building Carer Friendly Communities initiative.

The training sessions are for professionals and volunteers working with carers.

The training will cover the following:

  • Unpaid carers and the impact of caring
  • The importance of identifying and supporting carers
  • Carers rights
  • Support available – signposting – making a referral
  • A ‘Carer Friendly Community’ approach - why this is important and the role we can all play
  • Cost: FREE
  • Tea & Coffee will be provided

A few comments from previous course participants:

  • "Clear precise information, well explained"
  • "The training gave a very clear, factual overview of carers nationally and in East Sussex, their needs and services/support available"
  • "Really enjoyed the workshop - gained a lot of knowledge about how massive a role carers play"
