About us Why we exist What we do Care for the Carers is an independent charity and the Carers Centre for East Sussex. We have been supporting and representing unpaid carers in East Sussex since 1989. Our team of staff and volunteers can provide free practical and emotional advice – face to face, by telephone, or online. We can put you in touch with other carers, and help you navigate the range of services available locally. We also run support groups, training and events across the county – whether you are interested in speaking up on important issues, or having some time out to relax or meet new people. Care for the Carers represents carers and raises awareness of caring, working with local communities, organisations and service providers to build a carer friendly East Sussex. All our work is developed with carers, and in response to their expressed needs and reflects local and national strategy, legislation, research and best practice.
