Free for unpaid carers in East Sussex to focus on their own wellbeing with artist-led creative activity, conversations and a freshly cooked lunch.
Carers O'Clock provides support for adult carers across East Sussex, commissioned through the East Sussex County Council Adult Social Care Small Grants Programme. The 2022 Care for the Carers Annual Carers Survey showed this support is needed:
- 92% of carers in East Sussex feel alone or isolated
- 99% feel stressed and 92% feel their wellbeing has been affected as a result of their caring role
- 85% of carers are reporting impact on their physical health
- 85% of carers have issues with finances, which has increased dramatically since 2021
Carers O'Clock sessions are led by a team of artists, providing opportunities for carers to meet and engage in creative activities together in a safe and supportive environment. An added bonus is that carers are also able to enjoy a freshly cooked lunch and refreshments.
"I look forward to these events every month. I know that everyone there understands the difficulty of keeping our essential selves from disappearing amongst all the care needs"
