Carers Rights Day

Missing out? Know your rights as a carer

Carers Rights Day

Caring for Carers Guide

That's the theme of this year's national Carers Rights Day.

The day on 25 November, aims to bring organisations across the UK together to help carers in their local community know their rights and find out how to get the support they are entitled to.

We have created a Caring for Carers Guide, a 24-page leaflet packed with information on how to get help and support across the county in your caring role.

Topics within the leaflet focus on:

  • Training available to carers
  • Support group contacts
  • Your lawful rights as a carer
  • Money/financial help
  • Plus much more.
