East Sussex charity Care for the Carers will be opening the doors to its new pop-up information centre in Hailsham today.
Between Monday 4th and Friday 8th June, carers can drop in to see Care for the Carers staff to find out about support and advice available to unpaid carers in East Sussex at the Pop Up shop in the High Street.
Visitors can receive information at the shop in person about rights as a carer, wellbeing and information groups in the local area, the East Sussex Carers Card, plus practical and emotional advice they might need.
“I’d encourage all unpaid carers in the area to visit,” says Jo Egan, Operations Manager at Care For The Carers. “The aim of the Pop Up Carers Centre is to reach out within our local communities in and around Hailsham,” she says.
“We run a wide range of services for carers, including advice clinics, support groups, counselling, and even social activities such as pamper days, but many of the carers we have contact with say they wish they’d heard about us sooner,” continues Jo.
Residents are being encouraged to find out more about the 65,000+ unpaid carers across East Sussex, and how you can support them during the forthcoming national Carers Week, 11-17 June 2018.
