Care for the Carers works closely each year with partners in East Sussex to organise Carers Rights Day events for local carers to learn about their rights.

Carers UK holds Carers Rights Day annually to bring organisations across the UK together to help carers in their local community understand their rights and find out how to get the help and support they are entitled to.

More than 2 million people take on a new caring role each year and many struggle to navigate the maze of services, often missing out on financial and practical support they are entitled to.

It’s not just people who are new to caring – even those who have been caring for years sometimes aren’t aware of all their entitlements.

This year's Carers Rights Day is taking place on Friday, 24th November 2017, and Care for the Carers will provide more information about events happening in East Sussex nearer the time.

'Carers Rights' is also the theme of our Autumn Carers' Forum, which taking place in Lewes on the 24th October. For more information and to book your place, please visit our events page.
