Taking Care Of Care

Taking Care Of Care ImageAge Space is launching its winter campaign – ‘Taking Care Of Care’. Age Space is raising awareness of the large number of people across Sussex who do not identify as being carers, despite being solely responsible for the care of an older parent or relative.

Research shows this can lead to numerous people missing out on the guidance and support they sorely need. Especially when they may be struggling to cope.

Let Age Space Sussex help you cope with your caring responsibilities over the winter months. This page is where you can find all the resources and guidance you need.
