We also want to find ways for you to better manage your caring role while looking after your own health and wellbeing. If you would like to talk to one of the team, contact us to book into one of our dedicated phone surgeries and chose a date and time suitable to you.

Local Groups and Events

You can meet a member of our team for a face-to-face chat at one of our carer clinics. These offer an opportunity for you to meet in a private and safe environment to chat about how we can support you in your caring role.

Carer Groups

You can also meet a member of our team for a face-to-face chat at one of our carer groups. Our groups are open to people registered with us, to meet and chat with other carers and to access information and support from one of our local carer wellbeing workers.

Communities in Mind, covering the Bognor & Chichester areas, is a service for people, including carers, aged 65+ who need a little support with their mental health and well-being.

You may have stress, depression, anxiety and other mental health needs or you may just feel low through social isolation. Due to coronavirus, during November and early December, our face-to-face activity groups have been suspended, but we are continuing to offer phone support, Zoom group activity sessions and our newsletter/activity pack.

When we can, we will resume our activity groups in Bognor and Chichester. For more information and an informal chat, please call the service manager, Jo, on 07495 077 341

Terry’s Place provides a sanctuary for family and friend carers needing a break, or loved ones who are lonely or isolated, requiring a bit of social and emotional stimulation and support.
