Carers Rights Day 2018
Find out about the support you are entitled to as a carer.
Each year Carers Rights Day brings 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 are entitled to.
This year Carers Rights Day is on Friday 30 November when VAS Carers Support will be holding a Drop In session for carers at Market House from 11-1pm. Click here to fo find out more about this event.
Carers Rights Day: Caring for Your Future
Having the right information at the right time can make all the difference when you’re looking after someone.
Every day 6,000 people become carers but often it’s not something we’ve planned for. This Carers Rights Day we’re focusing on supporting people to prepare for the future through Carer UK's theme: Caring for Your Future.
We hold Carers Rights Day to:
- Make carers aware of their rights
- Let carers know where to get help and support
- Raise awareness of the needs of carers
