Carers Rights Day 2018

Every year Carers Rights Day seeks 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 - 30th November 2018

Carers Rights Day is an important date in our calendar. It's an opportunity to make carers aware of their rights and let them know where to find help and support. It also gives us the chance to raise awareness of carers' needs within the community.

According to Carers UK every day 6,000 people become carers but often it’s not something we’ve planned for. Having access to information and knowing about the help and support you are entitled to can make all the difference to your caring journey.

This year the theme is: Caring for your future.

To support this we're running a number of free events across Surrey where carers can access information and advice, have a look below to find events near you...
