Carers in Sheffield, in partnership with Irwin Mitchell solicitors, will be holding an information session on carers’ rights on Thursday 3 April 2014. This session will be suitable for carers of people aged 16 or over. This free event may help you if:
• you are new to caring, or have been caring for some time, and want to know more about your legal rights to support and information to help you care for your loved ones
•you have heard about the government’s Care Bill in the pipeline and want to know how it might affect carers’ rights
•you want to learn more about the assessment process in Adult Social Care Speakers will include public law specialists from Irwin Mitchell and experts from the Carers in Sheffield support and information team, with an opportunity for questions and to take away useful information for the future.
This event will focus on carers’ rights in relation to support from Adult Social Care (rather than health or employment), but we hope to hold similar events on different topics in the future.
There are 50 places available for carers for this event. However, in the booking system below we will advertise more tickets as available and use this as a waiting list if people are unable to attend or to contact you to run the event again if it is oversubscribed.
WE WILL CONTACT YOU TO CONFIRM YOUR PLACE. Please note that the term ‘carer’ refers to anyone providing unpaid essential help and support to a family member or friend affected by disability or severe illness. This includes people receiving Carers Alllowance. It does not refer to people who are paid care workers.
