Find out about organisations and services that can help you in your caring role

Some organisations that can offer support outside of Care for the Carers’ current office hours:

Online information and support for carers

Residential home help

Supporting Carers Identify & Plan Residential Respite (SCIPRR). SCIPRR is a short term service offered through Association of Carers,  where a volunteer helps a carer through the process of looking for a suitable residential home for the person they care for. They support them through identifying where would be most suitable and can accompany them on viewing visits. The volunteer can also visit the cared for person in residential respite if the carer is going away. There is a directory of care homes and services in East Sussex available online here.

    Support providers can also buy Brain in Hand for the person with care and support needs to use, and the National Autistic Society recommends sending their care provider information about Brain in Hand.
