Get the support you're entitled to this Carers Rights Day

20 November 2017

Carers FIRST in partnership with Lincolnshire County Council are hosting their annual Carers Rights Day.

The day will give carers and the people they care for an opportunity to get information and guidance from organisations in Lincolnshire who can support them.

Carers can pick up the latest ‘Carers Rights Guide’ and talk to the Lincolnshire Carers Service team about help available.

Executive member for adult care, Cllr Patricia Bradwell, said: “We’re delighted to support the Carers Rights Day, for many, caring is a rewarding and positive experience, but for others, without the right help and support caring can feel overwhelming.

“For some, caring can affect their physical and emotional health as well as adding stress to work or finances. We hope that the Carers Rights Day will give people the help they need.”

There are currently 6.5million people in the UK looking after a relative or friend, with 3 million people juggling a caring role with their employment.

The event is to take place at Lincoln Golf Centre, on Friday 24th November 2017 from 11am - 4pm. To book a place, contact Carers FIRST on 0300 303 1555.

Carers Rights Day is a national Carers UK campaign with events taking place all over the country. For more information, visit the Carers FIRST website.
