Your Carer Rights and Self Advocacy

Caring can be hard work - physically and emotionally. It's important to find out about the different ways you can get help and support with caring and your rights. The links below should provide you with everything you need to know.

If you can't find what you are looking for please contact Caring for Carers on 01752 201890 or email and they will do their best to help.

The Carers UK Looking after someone guide is for anyone who cares for family or friends. The guide outlines your rights as a carer and gives an overview of the practical and financial support available.

We encourage all carers to read Being Heard - a guide to self-advocacy for carers. The guide has been produced by Carers UK to help carers speak up for themselves and the person they care for.

Advice Plymouth offer advice and information on a range of topics. To speak to someone who will assess your advice needs, please call 0300 3309 043.
