Carers Rights Day

Having the right information at the right time can make all the difference when you’re looking after someone. Carers Rights Day takes place on 30 November, and focuses on supporting carers to know their rights and find out how to get the help and support they are entitled to.

A carer is defined as someone who provides unpaid care to a partner, relative, friend or neighbour who could not manage without this help because of frailty, physical or mental illness, addiction or disability.

This year the theme for Carers Rights Day is ‘Caring for your future’. We know that caring for someone while studying can be difficult, so we want to make sure that you have all the information and support you need throughout your time at university.

We will have an information stand on Allerton concourse from 12pm – 2pm on Friday 30 November, where you can pick up leaflets and talk to Salford Carers about the support available to you.

You can also find out more about Salford Carers online, or take a look at the askUS website to see what support is available for our student carers here at Salford.
