Carers Rights Day is a national campaign that happens every year to raise awareness of your rights as an unpaid carer. This year it is taking place on 25th November 2021.

As a token of our appreciation for all that unpaid carers do, the Carers Unit and our local and national partners have been planning activities for you - shaped by feedback from you and designed with you in mind.

This is just one of the ways that we want to help you to access the support that is available to you, if and when you need it (see events below) and the newsletter in downloads section on this page. All of the activities below and in the Newsletter are free for unpaid carers.

We have put together a Carers Rights Day newsletter for you to make you aware of all the FREE activities taking place over the coming months. (See newsletter in downloads section on this page).

We hope that you will join us to find out more about your rights and to get some practical solutions and useful advice to help you in your caring role.

Tip: You can also join any Zoom session via telephone by calling 0330 088 5830 and entering the meeting ID. Joining via telephone will cost local rates from a landline. If using a mobile phone, the minutes used would come out of the caller’s allowance.

As carers we know about the importance of caring for ourselves as well as others but too often, we can end up exhausted and not sure how to find the time or energy to do this.

On this short course we will explore together how we can find time for ourselves and ways to recharge our batteries, even when things seem really tough.
