On 21st November Bluebird Care Exeter, Exmouth, East and West Devon will be supporting Carer’s Rights Day.

On 21st November Bluebird Care Exeter, Exmouth, East and West Devon will be supporting Carer’s Rights Day. Organised by Carers UK, the day aims to encourage carers in local communities to find out about their rights and how to get the help and support they need.

According to Carers UK, every day 6,000 people in the United Kingdom become carers. Whether they are caring for a family member or friend, caring for another is something that many people do not plan for, and so dealing with the pressure can be incredibly difficult. There are a whole range of issues that need to be managed from dealing with care providers, managing medication, support with mental health, all on top of their own daily lives, families, careers and finances.

Organised by Carers UK, Carer’s Rights Day aims to bring everyone together in support of carers across the UK. Whether it’s a new carer or someone who has been caring for a while, it’s important that carers understand their rights and are able to access the support that is available to them.

Each year, Carers Rights Day helps to:

  • ensure carers are aware of their rights
  • let carers know where to get help and support
  • raise awareness of the needs of carers.

William Flint, director of Bluebird Care, Exeter, Exmouth, East and West Devon said: 

“At Bluebird Care we are proud to support Carer’s Rights Day. Caring for another person is an incredibly difficult thing to do, and we are astounded to hear that over 6,000 people take on this role across the UK every single day. Often there is not enough information or support offered to carers, and so we hope that by raising awareness of this important day that more people will be able to access vital help and resources when they need it.”
