Carers Week, 5th – 11th June 2023

Recognising and Supporting Carers in the Community

This Carers Week we are once again celebrating the amazing carers in East Sussex, thanking them for everything they do. We will be holding events where carers can connect with each other and unwind.

This year, Carers Week takes place from 5th -11th June 2023. The week celebrates and recognises the vital contribution made by the UK’s 6.5 million unpaid carers – over 69,000 in East Sussex – who look after a relative, friend or neighbour who couldn’t manage without them.

Find out more about what’s going on and download resources on our Carers Week 2023 page.

This year’s focus is ‘Recognising and supporting carers in the community’, and we’re asking carers and the community to come together, to share views and take some time out throughout the week. Carers and their friends and family, partner organisations and local businesses can all get involved to recognise and celebrate carers, and show support.
