Donating to the Association of Carers

We receive around 80% of our funding from East Sussex County Council, but still need to find around £45,000 each year to maintain our current services.

The kind of things that we particularly need additional money for are:

    • Paying for volunteer’s training and to reimburse their expenses

We raise funds in a variety of ways, such as collections, online giving, donations and fundraising events.

View from a regular donor:

“I am in receipt of the respite service, the service is a great help to me. Our volunteer Anna, comes every Wednesday afternoon to sit and
talk to my wife . This enables me to go out and visit my sister, go for a walk or go into town. I was happy to set up a regular monthly standing order to the Association of Carers, to give something back to help towards the running costs of the Charity”
