Our Adult Carers team provides information, support and advocacy to adults who look after someone else, unpaid. They might be caring for a parent, partner or friend with physical or mental health needs. Alternatively it may be that the person they care for has a substance misuse problem and needs to be supported on an occasional basis.
The principal local organization supporting parent carers of disabled children is Amaze: http://www.amazebrighton.org.uk
We work with carers who either live in Brighton and Hove or care for someone living in Brighton and Hove. We are an independent charity. Our services are free to use and are confidential.
What do Adult Carers do?
The care provided varies, from people balancing work with caring, people visiting someone in residential care or hospital to people providing continuous support in the home each day. Carers often face similar difficulties: financial, health related, social, and emotional.
