Tell Us Your Story... Tell Us Your Story...

At Carers Support West Sussex we understand that every Carer’s story is different.

Last year we started a campaign called Tell Us Your Story to help us raise awareness of what it is like to be a family and friend Carer.  Carers have sent us an amazing selection of poems and stories and kindly allowed us to share them with you all. We have found them truly inspirational, and we're sure you will too. We have compiled a booklet of some of the submissions we received, which you can download by clicking on the icon at the top right hand side of the page.

Thank you again to all the Carers that sent us their stories and poems.  It's important Carers voices and experiences are heard. 

The campaign doesn't stop here.  We still want to hear from you, this is an opportunity to have your voice heard and share your experiences with other Carers.  Write a poem or short story of what your life is like as a Carer and if appropriate how Carers Support have been able to help you in your caring role.

To submit your story or poem you can:

The poems and stories we have received have been so effective in reaching Carers and encouraging them to get support.  If you submit something to us, please can you include a completed consent form with your story or poem.  You can also download this at the top right hand side of the page.  

We would ideally likely to be able to name the authors of each submission but we will only print your name if we have your consent to do so.
