If you are one of the 62,000 unpaid carers in East Sussex then you will know what a struggle it can be.
Never fear! Help is at hand. The Association of Carers, who provide free volunteer led support to unpaid Carers, would like to invite you to free tea and cake, on Tuesday 25th April at The Albion, George Street Hastings so that they can tell you how they can help. This will be between 2 and 4. You could be entitled to free respite care once a week; as a volunteer keeps your loved one company, you can go out and have a break for yourself. (or maybe you’d like to do some gardening, or even catch up on your sleep!)
There are other services you could get too, so why not come along, find out and meet other carers?! Please call the team on 01424 722309 to register your place. What have you got to lose!?
(If you’re not a carer and think you could spare just three hours a week to give a carer a break, or just half an hour a week to give telephone support, then please call the team and ask about other roles too. It’s the same number, or email firstname.lastname@example.org
