Carers Rights Day 26th November 2020

Posted on 26th November 2020

Know Your Rights

Having the right information at the right time can make all the difference when you’re looking after someone. #CarersRightsDay

In a recent survey of nearly 6,000 carers, Carers UK found:

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

In Birmingham if you are a carer you can contact Forward Carers at the Carers HUB if you need support and information. Unpaid Carers have a right under the Care Act 2014 to a carers assessment to read more about this and make contact to arrange an assessment follow this link.

If you have a disability or support need and require an advocate contact us
