The Association of Carers has been in operation for over 30 years and was started by a group of Carers and healthcare professionals who recognised the need for Carers to be able to have a break from their caring roles.
They set up a respite service for Carers living in Hastings & St Leonard’s which grew over the years to include the Rother area. From 2008 five additional support services were developed in response to Carer’s needs.
On October 1st 2013 we expanded further and now provide four services to Carers living in East Sussex.
Supporting unpaid Carers in East Sussex to continue in their caring role by providing free, high quality, volunteer-led services that encourage independence and reduce isolation.
Enabling Carers throughout East Sussex to have access to free, high quality, volunteer-led support services.
