Carers Rights Day 2020 will be held on Thursday 26 November

About Carers Rights Day

Whether you are a new carer or have been caring for someone for a while, we believe that it’s important that you understand your rights and are able to access the support that is available to you as soon as you need it. Each year, Carers Rights Day helps us:

  • ensure carers are aware of their rights
  • let carers know where to get help and support
  • raise awareness of the needs of carers.

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

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. This Carers Rights Day, we want to empower carers with information and support, so they can feel confident asking for what they need. We also want carers to know how to challenge things when their rights are not being met.

Carers Rights Day 2020 is sponsored by Barclays LifeSkills


Carers Rights Day 2019

For Carers Rights Day 2019,  we joined together with organisations from across the UK to help carers in their local communities find their way, whether they were struggling with navigating a maze of health and social services, looking for places to access information, or finding they need extra support to cope with the pressures of caring.

Figures released for Carers Rights Day 2019 showed that two thirds of UK adults can expect to care unpaid for a loved one in their lifetime, while women are taking on caring responsibilities a decade earlier than men. View the full press release here.
