At Carers Support West Sussex, we carry out statutory Carer Assessments. This is an assessment on behalf of West Sussex County Council
We can offer one to one counselling at venues near to you where you can talk to a professional counsellor, who can give you the opportunity to explore how things are for you.
As a carer, it is vitally important that you take time for yourself, to look after your own health and wellbeing.
We run more than 60 support groups across West Sussex every month, catering for all types of caring situation
We have teams based in all of the major hospitals in West Sussex as well as East Surrey Hospital in Redhill and our local community hospitals.
Our Carer Response Line is open six days a week and is manned by our Carer Wellbeing Support Workers. Our Online Support service is also available during most weekdays.
We believe that connecting with others in a similar situation will provide you with a sense of support and a means of developing your own coping strategy.

Shine is a service dedicated to providing support to 18 – 25 year olds looking after a family member or friend who depends on that help.
