Our patrons

Caroline Lucas
MP for Brighton Pavilion, former leader and co-leader of The Green Party

“It’s an honour to be a patron of The Carers Centre. As a local Member of Parliament I see firsthand the incredible work done by the team to support and advise local people who find themselves in a caring role. From helping people to make important decisions to raising awareness of what services or welfare carers are entitled to, the Centre empowers people and really does change lives.“

Professor Saul Becker
Provost at the University of Sussex

“I support the work of The Carers Centre because it provides a platform for the voices of carers to be heard, and a service to meet their needs. It is a symbol of what is best in our society – caring for the carers.”

Peter Field
HM Lord Lieutenant for East Sussex

“It’s important to recognise the contribution to our community made by Young Carers, because Young Carers quietly care – perhaps a lesson for us all.”

Board of Trustees

Members of the Carers Centre have a vested interest in the way the Centre is run and annually elect members to the Board of Trustees.

The Board of Trustees is elected every year following the Annual General Meeting and is responsible for the governance and direction of the charity to ensure that it complies with all required obligations and charity regulations.
