Each year, Carers Rights Day brings organisations across the UK together to help unpaid carers in their local community know their rights and find out how to get the help and support they are entitled to. Unpaid carers provide voluntary support to a family or a friend while sometimes having to work to support themselves. Carers Rights Day aims to:
- Make unpaid carers aware of their rights
- Let unpaid carers know where to get help and support
- Raise awareness of the needs of unpaid carers
In celebration of Carers Rights Day, the Reading and West Berkshire Carers Hub are hosting free information sessions in support of unpaid carers. A wide range of organisations supporting carers will be present to provide information and advice: Carers Hub, MyCare MyHome, Stroke Association, DWP, Age UK Berkshire, Healthwatch Reading, Parenting Special Children, Citizen Advice…and more.
