Today is Carers Rights Day- a national campaign to raise awareness of the rights carers have, how to implement them and how to connect to support if required.
It takes time to see yourself as a carer and even longer to recognise you have certain rights. However, it’s important to know your rights to access support that may be essential to maintaining your own health, well-being, and work-life balance.
Check out our Carers Rights page for lots of information and signposting to support should you need it.
Throughout the day we will be sharing some information about key carers rights on our Facebook page, all of which are shown on our Carers Rights page and Carers Rights Day campaign page, you can also follow Carers UK who are leading the national campaign.
We would like to take this opportunity to say thank you to all local carers, we know caring isn't always easy!
