Carers do have rights.....
Carers Rights Day 2016 is on Friday 25 November,
and this year's theme is: Missing out? Know your rights as a carer
Each year we hold Carers Rights Day to bring 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.
If you are caring for someone at the moment and would like to find out more about your rights and how to get help, click here. Otherwise, find out how you can get involved and help us get information and advice to carers this Carers Rights Day visit https://www.carersuk.org/
