Caring can be overwhelming and stressful. Carers Rights Day is an annual campaign that aims to ensure carers are aware of their rights, let carers know where they can get help and support and raise awareness of the needs of carers. Whether you are new to caring or have been caring for a while, it is important to understand your rights and that you are able to access support available to you as soon as you need it. 

The information sessions will focus on the future of care and opportunities to get involved. The unique and experienced skill set of carers can open up opportunities to support others and earn whilst you do. Come along and join NEWCIS and other organisations at the following sessions to find out more.
