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 24th November 2022.

As a token of our appreciation for all that unpaid carers do, the Carers and Community Support Team, and partners, have organised three events across Ceredigion in celebration of Carers Rights Day.

Carers Rights Day 2022

All unpaid carers and their cared for are invited to attend the free events and will get the opportunity to access a wide range of information and support, whilst socialising with other carers.

Members of the Carers and Community Support Team along with professionals from organisations such as Gofalwyr Ceredigion Carers, Citizens Advice Bureau Ceredigion, Nest, Job Centre Plus and more, will be available to speak on a one-to-one basis about what support they can provide to carers.

Teas and coffees, and a lunch of soup and bread will be on offer at no extra cost.  Carers are welcome to drop in at any time and stay for as little or as long as they would like. There will also be a limited number of goodie bags up for grabs!

If you would like to attend but you are not sure how you can make that happen, please contact us on 01545 574200 / connecting@ceredigion.gov.uk and we will try to help you find the right support.
