Carers Rights Day 2014 – Looking after someone? Know your rights!

Sefton Council Consultation Opportunity – Remodelling day opportunities

Looking after someone?  Know your rights

Friday 28th November 2014

10.30am – 1pm

West Lancs Golf Club, Hall Road West, Blundellsands, Liverpool L23 8SZ

Each year Carers Rights Day aims to:

  • Increase the take up of benefits – it’s estimated that millions of carers’ benefits aren’t claimed each year.
  • Make sure carers know their rights –many of those looking after a disabled or older loved one don’t identify themselves as carers and miss out on support. Even those who have been caring for years sometimes aren’t aware of their entitlements.
  • Guide carers towards practical support – it’s not just about benefits. Carers often do not realise practical support is available, like replacement care to give the carer time off, help with lifting and bathing, equipment and home adaptations that can be vital in protecting carers’ health.

We would like to invite carers in Sefton to join us on Friday 28th November between 10.30am – 1pm at West Lancs. Golf Club.  A range of information and advice services will be on hand to help.

We would also like to hear your views about the remodelling of day opportunities.  You can drop in anytime between 10.30am – 1pm and speak to a Sefton Council representative.  Alternatively, staff from Sefton Carers Centre will be on hand to help you fill in your consultation questionnaire.

Please call 0151 288 6060 or drop into Sefton Carers Centre, 27 – 37 South Road, Waterloo, L22 5RF for more information
