Welcome to the Association of Carers website

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.

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

  • Carers save the economy £119 billion per year
  • 3 in 5 people will become a Carer at some point in their lives
  • 1 in 8 adults in the UK are currently looking after someone without pay
  • There are nearly 60,000 unpaid Carers in East Sussex
  • Of these over 13,000 are providing 50 or more hours of unpaid care a week

(Statistics taken from East Sussex in Figures, using data from the 2011 Census)
