Carers Rights Day: empowering unpaid carers

Every year on Carers Rights Day, organisations around the UK shine a much-needed spotlight on the hidden workforce in society: the unpaid carers who dedicate time and energy to supporting their loved ones.


Carers: the right to support

In the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, unpaid carers have been left overworked and undervalued as they continue to take on additional responsibilities to care for their loved ones.



The power of community care this Carers Rights Day

Carers Rights Day is an annual event to make carers aware of their rights, where to get guidance, and to raise awareness of carers’ needs. We speak to one carer about finding support from other parents and this year’s focus: helping carers find their way in local communities.
