Welcome to the Association of Carers

The Association of Carers provides free, volunteer-led support services to unpaid Carers in East Sussex

A Carer is someone of any age who provides unpaid support to family or friends who could not manage without this help.

This can be caring for a relative, partner or friend who is ill, frail, disabled or has mental health or substance misuse problems.

Most people who become carers never anticipate it ...

Usually, it is a job that lands on them as a result of changing, and often tragic, circumstances. A partner suffering a stroke or developing dementia, a child born with cerebral palsy, a friend or neighbour confined to a wheelchair after a debilitating accident could all potentially force any one of us into a carer’s role at any time.
