Carers Right's Day 2023 Shrewsbury Market Hall

Event details

  • Price: Free

National Carers Rights Day raises awareness to help carers understand your rights so you can get the support available.

Carers are people who care for our support someone else, who needs help wither because of ill health or disability. Carers are not paid.

Whether you are new to your caring role, or you have been caring for a while, we encourage you to get involved. Come and meet us!

Shropshire Carers Support Team is holding an information stall to mark this day so we can talk to you about your rights and what's available to support you.

Do you look after someone who couldn’t manage without your help? If you do, you are probably a carer.

Do you know your rights as a carer?

About Shropshire Carers Support Team

Shropshire Carers is a dedicated carer support team, within Shropshire Council, providing information, advice and support to adult family and unpaid carers. 

Our vision is to enable carers to live their best lives by providing timely and quality information and support.  

We are not a time limited service and may be working with individual carers for a short time or for longer periods of time, or carers may dip in and out of our service depending on their individual needs. 

The service offers carers:  

  • 1:1 support - we work with you to explore the options available to you as a carer
  • Information and advice personalised for you
  • Support line 01743 341995 operating Monday to Friday 9am-5pm
  • Signposting or referral to specialist advice and support eg benefits advice, advocacy
  • Regular check in and chats to check on your wellbeing
  • Assistance with planning ahead; the right information at the right time
  • Peer support groups (virtual and in the community)
  • Information and training workshops
  • Events and activities
  • Carer Register – a means of sharing important information quickly with you by a method that suits you best. With enrolment to the register you will also receive a carer ID/emergency card, emergency plan and free five part email course delivered by Mobilise
