    Looking after someone? Know your rights!

    Carers’ Rights Day is a national event held every year to ensure that carers know their rights regarding benefit entitlements and learn about the practical support available to help them in their caring role. To mark this special event, Derbyshire Carers’ Association are inviting carers and those working in Health and Social Care across the city to take part in a learning and development day. This ‘drop-in’ event will give participants the opportunity to find out how legal changes to the Care Act (commencing April 2015) may affect their rights as carers.
