Carers Rights Day

Carers Rights Day

Devon Carers are holding a Carers Rights Day

Thursday 26th November 2020

Whether you are a new carer or have been caring for a while, Devon Carers believe it is important that you are aware of your rights and can access the support available to you, at the time, you may need it.

The theme for Carers Rights Day 2020, is Know Your Rights

• making carers aware of their rights
• letting carers know where to get help and support
• raising awareness of the needs of carers

As unpaid carers, you need to know your rights wherever you are in your caring journey: whether you are in the workplace, in a healthcare setting, when interacting with professionals or, at home. Devon Carers want to empower carers with information and support, so you can feel confident asking for what you need. Devon Carers also want carers to know how to challenge things, if their rights are not being met.

Following COVID-19 guidance and regulations, Devon Carers 'Carers Rights Day' events will be provided online through Zoom. Should you require any IT support to help to access Zoom on your device, please contact Devon Carers well in advance, as they may be able to help.
