Carers Rights Day 2023 takes place on Thursday, November 23, and it’s about raising awareness of carers’ rights and entitlements, to help carers get the support they need.
Whether someone has recently become a carer, realised they have been caring for a while without support, or has been caring for someone for many years, it’s important they understand their rights and are able to access the support that is available to them whenever they need it.
Carers Rights Day empowers carers with information and support. It helps them feel confident asking for what they need and challenge things when their rights are not being met, whether that be in the workplace or education, in accessing health or social care, or when interacting with other professionals or at home.
