About Carers Rights Day
Whether you are a new carer or have been caring for someone for a while, it is important that you understand your rights and are able to access the support that is available to you as soon as you need it. Many people are taking on more caring responsibilities for their relatives and friends who are disabled, ill or older and who need support. Carers Rights Day helps us:
The theme for Carers Rights Day 2020 is 'Know Your Rights'
In a recent survey of nearly 6,000 carers, Carer’s UK found:
Carers need to know their rights wherever they are in their caring journey: whether they are in the workplace, in a healthcare setting, when interacting with professionals or at home. This Carers Rights Day, we want to empower carers with information and support, so they can feel confident asking for what they need.
If you are caring for someone and want to know more about your rights, see the attached document to read our Looking after someone guide.
