Carers Rights Day

Each year Carers Rights Day brings organisations together to help carers in the local community know their rights and find out how to get the help and support they are entitled to.

This year Carers Rights Day is Thursday 23 November 2023.

What is Carers Rights Day?

Whether you are a new carer or have been caring for someone for a while, we believe that it’s important that you understand your rights and are able to access the support that is available to you as soon as you need it.

This year, our campaign will focus on the ways in which Caring Costs unpaid carers. From carers’ wellbeing and ability to access health services, to costs to their finances and employment options, to the current cost of living crisis which is being felt even more acutely by carers throughout the UK, Caring Costs in so many ways.

Each year, Carers Rights Day helps us:

  • Ensure carers are aware of their rights
  • Let carers know where to get help and support
  • Raise awareness of the needs of carers.
