Having the right information at the right time can make a huge difference when you are looking after someone. This year Carers Rights Day is taking place on Friday 20 November 2015.
Each year we hold Carers Rights Day to bring organisations across the UK together to help carers in their local community find out about their rights and how to get the help and support they are entitled to.

Having the right information at the right time can make a huge difference when you are looking after someone.
Each year we hold Carers Rights Day to bring organisations across the UK together to help carers in their local community know their rights and find out how to get the help and support they are entitled to.
Making carers aware of their rights.
Every year, more than 2 million people take on a new caring role. Many struggle to navigate the maze of services and entitlements, and miss out on financial and practical support as a result. And it’s not just people who are new to caring – even those who have been caring for years sometimes aren’t aware of all their entitlements.
Letting carers know where to get help and support.
Caring can bring all kinds of challenges. We want every carer to know where to turn for advice, information and support, whether in their local community or online.
Raising awareness of the needs of carers.
Carers Rights Day raises awareness of the needs of carers with the public, decision makers and professionals, helping us realise our vision of a society that respects, values and supports carers.
How can I get involved?
From a coffee morning to a benefits drop-in session or an information stand, there are loads of ways that your group can get involved and help us get information and advice to carers.
When you sign up we'll send you everything you need to get involved, and keep you up to date with the latest news, event ideas and resources through our Carers Rights Day email updates.
Carers Rights Day sees the launch of the latest edition of our Carers Rights Guide which provides a comprehensive and accessible guide to the practical and financial support available for carers.
