Carers' Rights Day 2021 will be held on Thursday 25 NovemberCarers Rights Day logo

This year's Carers Rights Day campaign will focus on raising awareness of the rights that unpaid carers have.

  

The pandemic has had a massive impact on the lives of carers, affecting access to services, the ability to juggle work and care and much more. That's why it’s more important than ever that carers are aware of what they have the right to.

 

Why being aware of your rights is so important

In a recent survey of nearly 600 carers in Wales, we found:

 

  • Four in five unpaid carers are providing more care for relatives
  • 76% reported that the needs of the person they care for have increased during the pandemic
  • Two thirds (68%) worried about how they will cope through further lockdowns or local restrictions.
