In support of Carers Rights Day 2022 Age Scotland are delivering a Carers Rights workshop to enable carers across Scotland to learn more about their rights.
What do people mean when they talk about carers rights? And how can carers access these rights? This workshop will provide an introduction to the different rights of unpaid carers, including those set out in legislation such as the Carers (Scotland) Act and Self-directed Support Act, and will increase carers’ confidence and knowledge to seek out these rights.
This workshop will have particular relevance to carers of people living with dementia, but will also be useful for unpaid carers of older people in Scotland, as well as volunteers and those supporting carers. It aims to enable participants to increase their knowledge of carers rights and support available.
By the end of this workshop:
• You will have had an introduction to the main areas of carers rights, including the Carers (Scotland) Act
• You will understand how to seek further help with these rights if need be
