Carers Rights Day is Thurs 26 November
Carers Rights Day this year falls on Thursday 26 November, and the theme for today is : ‘Know your Rights!’.
As Carers Network will not be able to be out and about in the community they are hosting a ‘Virtual Stall’ between 11am-1pm and 2pm – 4pm to try and meet unpaid carers that they are not yet engaging with.
Calling all Unpaid Carers
Know your rights and where to get support this Carers Rights Day!
Are you a local unpaid carer, or do you have a family member or friend who is?
Thursday 26 November is Carers Rights Day 2020!
This is a national day to raise awareness about your rights and where you can get help and support!
Carers Network is a local charity supporting unpaid carers in central London.
They would love to be out and about in the community meeting local carers, but due to current
restrictions are instead going to be hosting an online ‘virtual stall’ on the day.
Why not pop in, meet the Carers Network team over a cup of tea or coffee, and find out how they can help you!
There will be a morning session from 11am-1pm and an afternoon session from 2pm-4pm.
They’d love to meet as many carers on day as possible.
There is no need to register, and the log-in details are the same for the morning and afternoon:
Meeting ID: 878 4631 9852

Family Action (Young Carers)
On this day Family Action are raising awareness of the ‘hidden-army’ of Young Carers, under 18, who provide care for loved ones who may be physically or mentally ill, frail, elderly, disabled or misuse alcohol or substances. Without support Young Carers are left vulnerable. Young Carers have rights to assessment and support, and it is our responsibility to help them assert these rights. Family Action have put together a 7-minute briefing to help inform, and increase professionals awareness. Please take the time to watch, listen, and show your commitment to supporting Young Carers.
