Connecting Carers has lined up some great speakers for Carers Rights Day


Carers Rights Day events schedule

It is highly important Carers, whether you are a new Carer or it is a role you have been in for a while, that you understand your rights and are able to access the support available to you as soon as you need it. Each year, Carers Rights Day, this year on Thursday, November 26, helps us raise awareness of the needs of Carers, ensures Carers are aware of their rights and lets Carers know where to get help and support. With that in mind, for 2020, Connecting Carers has a programme of online events delivered by experts to help you understand:

  •  10am-10.45  What is Advocacy? 
  •  11am-11.45  What is a Personal Assistant and how to recruit one?
