Carers Support West Sussex
Carers Support West Sussex is a local charity team of staff and volunteers, working with and for family and friend carers. Our vision is to bring the day forward when family & friend carers are seen, heard and included.
With more than 120,000 carers in this county and more than 26,000 carers currently registered with the charity, we run Support Groups, a Carer Response Line, help carers access equipment to assist them in their caring role or provide funds so that carers can do something for themselves. We can also help carers access counselling and call back services, wellbeing support and have teams in all of the major hospitals in West Sussex, as well as East Surrey Hospital in Redhill.
With more than 100 members of staff and over 70 volunteers, as well as a dedicated team of Trustees, Carers Support is committed to ensuring carers are recognised and listened to. Unpaid carers save the UK econonomy more than £150 billion across England and Wales every year.
We are there for unpaid carers when they are most in need.
- We are a carer facing helpline offering information, guidance, and practical support. We are a gateway for carers to emotional, specialist, peer support and learning.
- We work with carers, communities, and partners in the County of West Sussex and throughout the South East of England.
- We meet carers where they are at on their carer journey asking the right questions at the right times, offering them recognition and empowerment, as well as a sense of community from their peers.
- We know that mothers, sons, fathers, daughters, friends, lovers, partners, husbands, wives, and family do so much for others every day while trying to maintain a life for themselves.
Our strategy is designed to focus on being there for unpaid carers when they are most in need.
