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.
