There are almost seven million carers in the UK and come in all ages. Some carers are paid and others unpaid. All carers do some incredible work to look after their loved ones.
Today (26 November 2020) is Carers Rights day a day to highlight the millions of carers and for them to understand their rights.
Whether you are a new carer or have been caring for someone for a while, 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.
If you are a carer and want to know your rights, please visit the Carers UK website
