Care for the Carers has been supporting and representing unpaid carers in East Sussex since 1989.  Then known as “East Sussex Care for the Carers Council”, we were registered as a charity in 1990.  In 1999, the name was simplified to “Care for the Carers”. 

Since the charity’s early days, we have offered a range of services to unpaid carers, and contributed to strategic planning and awareness raising to improve carers’ lives.  In recent years, our twentieth and twenty fifth anniversaries were a cause for celebration, and we were delighted to welcome HRH the Princess Royal to open our new Carers Centre in Eastbourne in 2012.
