Today is Carers Rights Day - Thursday 25 November

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

Whether you are a new carer or have been caring for someone for a while, it’s important that you understand your rights and are able to access the support that is available to you. Many people are taking on more caring responsibilities for their relatives and friends who are disabled, ill or older and who need support. Each year, Carers Rights Day helps us:

  • Ensure carers are aware of their rights
  • Let carers know where to get help and support
  • Raise awareness of the needs of carers.


Looking after someone is a guide created by Carers UK. The guide outlines your rights as a carer and gives an overview of the practical and financial support available.

Bury Carers' Hub

The Hub provides a single point of access for adult Carers who are caring for a Bury resident as well as former adult Carers whose caring role ended in the last 2 years.

They provide information, advice and a wide range of specialist support services designed to help adult Carers continue in their caring role for as long as they choose and reduce the impact the caring role can have on their own health and wellbeing.  

They work directly with individual Carers to discuss their concerns and needs, and design a tailored personalised support package.
