Know your rights as a Carer

The Care Act 2014 and the Children and Families Act 2014 strengthen the rights and recognition of Carers in the social care system, and will both come into effect in April 2015.
The Care Act covers adult Carers of adults as well as Young Carers approaching adulthood. The Children and families Act 2014 includes assessment rights for parents of disabled children and Young Carers.
Both Acts include a clear right to an assessment.
Following an assessment the Care Act also gives adult Carers of adults a clear right to receive services where their needs meet a nationally set elegibility threshold.
