Jointly is an app that makes caring for someone a little easier, less stressful and a lot more organised by making communication and coordination between those who share the care as easy as a text message.

Pamper Day for Carers is an annual event held at Burgess Hill Girls school, and is free for any local resident who provides unpaid care to a family member or friend. Look out for the next date in the local press, the Town Council’s About Town Magazine, website and social media.

Companionship and Outings
The Zodiac Club is a members’ social club for single people over the age of 60 who are retired, semi-retired or working, and is for those who would perhaps like to meet new friends and enjoy some of the social events which we organise – but is definitely not a dating agency!
