Are you a carer?
If you support someone who couldn’t manage without your help, then you are one of the 89,000 carers currently living in West Sussex.
It’s common for many people who have caring responsibilities not to think of themselves as carers. Carers Week aims to reach these ‘hidden carers’ and encourage them to get in touch with carer support organisations for information, advice and support.
A family or friend carer is anyone who cares, unpaid, for someone who due to illness, disability, a mental health problem or an addiction cannot cope without their support.
Carers come from all cultures, backgrounds and walks of life. Many carers will often have other demands and responsibilities, such as work or school.
Are you, or do you know someone, who is a family or friend carer for ex-military personnel?
The Carers Centre in Brighton is looking for friend and family carers of ex-military personnel to ensure they get the right support and guidance to make their role easier.
