Care for the Carers

is dedicated to supporting people who are caring voluntarily for relatives, friends or neighbours. We do this in several ways.

Outreach workers can visit carers at home or in a neutral venue to discuss their situation confidentially and explore ways of dealing with any difficulties they are facing. We can help carers to get services from Social Services, local councils, NHS, or independent organisations. We can also help carers to get accurate benefits advice, or to apply for grants relevant to their particular needs.

All our services are free of charge to carers, including our magazine Careline. We run a monthly support group for Carers at Wadhurst Manor which meets on the 3rd Thursday of every month from 10:30 - 12:00.
