Carers Rights Day 2018

Each year Carers UK hold Carers Rights Day to help carers know their rights and find out how to get the help and support they are entitled to.

To help celebrate the day, here are just a few simple ways that you can raise awareness and build support for young carers in Sheffield:

1. Come along to our ‘Stop the Clock’ Research and Action event

An exciting free event led by young carers on Wednesday 28th Nov, 4:30-6:30. Book your places here.

2. Raise awareness in your school or workplace

If you work in a school, run an assembly or a lesson, put up a display, add young carers to a meeting agenda, or encourage your school governors to book on to our training in January. Contact us for free templates and resources.

You can also download free Carers Rights Day logos and posters here to display in your workplace. And if you’re a manager, find out what you can do to support the carers in your workplace today.

3. Support our campaign

Sign and share the petition for free travel for young carers in Sheffield.

4. Help young carers that you work with

5. Keep up to date!

Sign up to our newsletter to get quarterly updates on resources and support available for young carers.

We hope we’ve given you plenty of ideas for raising awareness about young carers and promoting Carers Rights Day this year. But if you need any more help or advice, please get in touch with us today and we’ll do our best to help!
