Carers Rights Day

Thursday 25th November 2021

Whether you are a new carer or have been caring for a while, we believe it is important you are aware of your rights and can access the support available to you, at the time, you may need it.

Know Your Rights, the theme for Carers Rights Day 2021, is about:

  • making carers aware of their rights
  • letting carers know where to get help and support
  • raising awareness of the needs of carers

As unpaid carers, you need to know your rights wherever you are in your caring journey: whether you are in the workplace, in a healthcare setting, when interacting with professionals or, at home. We want to empower carers with information and support, so you can feel confident asking for what you need. We also want carers to know how to challenge things, if their rights are not being met.
