Association of Carers

A Carer is someone of any age who provides unpaid support to family or friends who could not manage without this help. This can be caring for a relative, partner or friend who is ill, frail, disabled or has mental health or substance misuse problems.

The Association of Carers provides free, volunteer-led support services to unpaid Carers in East Sussex.


Barbarian Swimmers

The Club is Non-competitive, but a spirit of attainment and achievement is encouraged. The reason for this is that the Club has a full programme for teaching not only swimming but Water-Survival, Watermanship Skills, Diving and Life-Saving. In short:- Swim, Survive, Save. We want all of our members to be able to look after themselves in the event of an emergency. To this end the Club has an extensive Programme for teaching Beginners how to swim, and on to the experienced swimmers taking their Gold Badges and even National Rescue Standard and Student Awards.
