Carers Rights Day Thursday 25 November 2021

Carers need to know their rights wherever they are in their caring journey.

Most Carers faced additional challenges from the impact of the Covid pandemic, taking on more caring responsibilities, their access to services affected, and limited respite from managing work and care.

This year’s campaign focuses on raising awareness of the rights that unpaid carers have.

  • Carers have the right to be identified as a carer
    Register with us as a carer and receive help and support along your caring journey
  • Carers have the right to receive a Carer’s Assessment
    Contact us to receive a Carers assessment and get help and support
  • Carers have the right to request a free flu jab
    Contact your GP or nearest flu jab centre
  • Carers have the right to protection from discrimination
    If you look after an older person, someone with mental health or a disabled person, the law – under the Equality Act 2010 – protects you against direct discrimination or harassment because of your caring responsibilities.
  • Carers have the right to discuss flexible working options
    Juggling work and care can be very challenging, so it’s important to understand the rights you have both in law and with your employer.
  • Carers have the right to be consulted on hospital discharge
    If you are an unpaid carer and the person you care for is being discharged from hospital, the hospital must identify and consult with you, where possible.

    Carers Trust Hillingdon is here when you need expert information, advice and support, financial and practical help or about any other challenges caring can present.
    We want to improve carers’ lives by:
    1) Tackling carer loneliness and isolation across all ages
    2) Supporting carers to minimise the financial impact of caring
    3) Improving carers’ physical and mental health across the life course
    4) Developing carers’ skills and resilience to help them to manage all elements of caring.

This is now a permanent offer for any carer that would like telephone friendship and support. Call us on 01895 811206 to arrange calls.
