Carers Rights Day
Each year Carers Rights Day is held by CarersUK 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.
This year Carers Rights Day is on Friday 30 November.
Carers Rights Day: Caring for Your Future
Having the right information at the right time can make all the difference when you’re looking after someone.
Every day 6,000 people become carers but often it’s not something we’ve planned for.This Carers Rights Day we’re focusing on supporting people to prepare for the future through our theme: Caring for Your Future.
We hold Carers Rights Day to:
- Make carers aware of their rights
- Let carers know where to get help and support
- Raise awareness of the needs of carers
This year at KCN we will be holding a forum and lunch for carers to meet the advice team and have the opportunity to ask questions.
Please note this is now fully booked
