Carers Rights Day 2021

This year we are hoping to return to a face-to-face Carers Rights Day information event at the Crowne Plaza Hotel, Plymouth on Friday 26th November 2021. Please come back to this page for further information closer to the time.


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. Many people are taking on more caring responsibilities for their relatives and friends who are disabled, ill or older and who need support.


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.
