Carers Rights Day is taking place on the 25th November 2021
Carers rights day, led by Carers UK, takes place every year to recognise the valuable contribution Carers provide and to:
- Ensure Carers are aware of their rights
- Let Carers know where to get help and support
- Raise awareness of the needs of Carers.

The Lincolnshire Carers Communication Group has collaborated in putting together publicity material that you can use to take part in the Campaign and promotion leading up to the day. These materials have been developed with no logos attached to them so you can use them freely.
The hashtag we are promoting for the day is #WhoCaresInLincolnshire
