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.

Leaving a Legacy
Gifts left in Wills are a very valuable source of income for the Association of Carers.
Making a Will
It is important that everyone makes a Will to ensure that your estate is passed on according to your wishes. Leaving a Will ensures that your wishes are carried out to the letter, leaving no doubt or uncertainty for those you leave behind. A Will can also include a gift to a charity or charities of your choice.
Anyone can do it!
Anyone can leave a charitable gift in their Will. It can be a simple cash payment or a percentage of the remaining or residuary estate.

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”
