Through our annual Carers Rights Day we call on all carers to get the support they're entitled to, wherever they are in their caring journey.
We've launched a range of new resources to help carers get the information they need. Find out more below, and to stay up-to-date on the latest news affecting carers, join us or sign up to our email newsletter.
Upfront is the first online guide of its kind to give tailored financial and practical information to those who are new to caring.
As well as the practical and financial support, you’ll find information to help you manage the impact of caring on your health and relationships. Click the link below to give it a go and get your own personalised guide to caring!
The Carers Rights Guide is here to give you the full picture of the practical and financial support available.
The 2016 edition brings you up-to-date on your rights and where to go for help, and includes the latest information on benefits, other financial help, practical help, technology and work.
Carers NI will be releasing their new edition of the Carers NI Carers Rights Guide in 2016 – click here to sign up to the email newsletter to find out as soon as it is released. In the meantime, they have realised two brand new factsheets for carers in Northern Ireland – click here to download.
Get the skills and confidence you need to face the challenges of caring – from learning how to navigate a confusing system to how to communicate effectively.
We have produced Being Heard – a self-advocacy guide for carers to help carers get their voice heard and communicate their concerns in a way that gives them the best chance of getting a positive outcome.
The guide includes sections on 'the system', communicating effectively and emotions and thinking.
