Carers’ Support East Kent Join Discovery Park

Thanks for the warm welcome! We’re Carers’ Support East Kent, a local charity providing Carers in East Kent with information and support. We moved into Innovation House at the beginning of April and have been overwhelmed by the warm welcome.

Here’s a little about what we do. One in nine people in East Kent is a Carer; meaning that they look after a relative or friend, who due to physical or mental illness, age-related difficulties, disability, or an addiction, cannot manage without their support. Many Carers combine their caring responsibilities with working, so we also help employers to think about ways they can support employees who are Carers. If you are a Carer and need support, an employer or would just like to know more, do get in touch by calling 0300 302 0061 or emailing support@carersek.org.uk. There’s also a lot of information on our website too – https://carersek.org.uk/

As part of National Carers’ Week (6 – 12) June, we’re holding a dress up fundraising day Go Colourful For Carers on Friday 10th June.

Come together with colleagues, family or friends for some colourful fun. It’s easy to take part, simply:
