Your rights: today, tomorrow and in the future
Carers Rights Day 2023 – Know your rights!
It is important that, as an unpaid carer, you feel confident asking for what you need and to challenge when your rights are not being met, whether that be at work, home or when accessing health and social care services.
Today is Carers Rights Day and a great opportunity to raise awareness of caring, identify carers and signpost you to information, advice and support. Whether you are new to caring or have been an unpaid carer for many years, it is important you know your rights! With thanks to Carers UK for compiling this handy list, this blog summarises your main rights as an unpaid carer including some which will become law next year.
