Carers Rights Day

Having the right information at the right time can make a huge difference when you're looking after someone.

Each year Carers Rights Day (external link) 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 help and support they're entitled to.

Carer's Rights day was on Thursday 24 November 2022 - the theme was Caring Costs.

see Carer's First (external link) to find out more, or contact Carer's First by email wf@carersfirst.org.uk or tel: 0300 303 1555.

Making carers aware of their rights

Every year, more than 2 million people take on a new caring role. Many people struggle to navigate the maze of services and entitlements, and miss out on financial and practical support as a result. And it’s not just people who are new to caring – even those who have been caring for years sometimes aren’t aware of all their entitlements.

Letting carers know where to get help and support

Caring can bring all kinds of challenges. We want every carer to know where to turn for advice, information and support, whether in their local community or online.

Raising awareness of the needs of carers

Carers Rights Day raises awareness of the needs of carers with the public, decision-makers and professionals, helping us realise our vision of a society that respects, values and supports carers.
