Carers Rights Day – ‘Know Your Rights!’

Carers Rights Day – ‘Know Your Rights!’

Carers Rights Day – 'Know Your Rights!' 25th November 2021

Derbyshire Carers Association (DCA) are here to support unpaid carers in

understanding their rights and provide access and signposting for wider support

services which may be available to them.

Each year Carers Rights Day brings organisations together to help carers in the local

community to understand their rights and find out how to get the help and support

they are entitled to.

DCA raises the awareness of the needs of carers and lets carers know their rights

and where to access the help they need.

We want carers to know how and when their rights are not being met and how they

can challenge this. We want to empower carers with information and support, so

they can feel confident asking for what they need.

Carers need to know their rights wherever they are in their caring journey;

whether they are in the workplace, in a healthcare setting, when interacting with

professionals or at home.

We have a Carers Right Day packed with all kinds of informative talks and

workshops which will help our Carers 'know their rights'.

Attached is our guide to what we have planned and how to register.
