Carers Rights Day is on Thursday 26th November 2020.
Carers Rights Day is a national campaign that brings organisations together to help carers in their local community know their rights and find out how to get the support they are entitled to. This year’s theme is `Know your rights’.
There are an estimated 68,000 unpaid carers in East Sussex, with an additional 34,000 carers caring for someone because of the pandemic. Many carers are not aware of their rights, or what support they are entitled to.
Please spread the word and if you know someone who is caring for someone, let them know that there is help and support available. Carers may not realise that they are carers at all, and looking after someone is something that they take on and do. Further information about being a carer and why carers should be supported is here.
