Carers Rights Day 23rd November 2023

Carers Rights Day 23rd November 2023

Whether you are a new carer or have been caring for someone for a while, it’s important that you understand your rights and access the support that is available to you as soon as you need it. Carers Rights Day is about raising awareness of carers’ rights and entitlements, to help carers get the support they need.

To celebrate Carers Rights Day on Thursday 23th November we invite you to join us at Old Lyonians Ground where there will be presentations from experts covering important topics and there will also be an opportunity for you to speak with professionals and to ask questions specific to your need(s).

A review of the borough carers strategy and our AGM will also take place on this day. This will be a great opportunity to meet the Strategic Commissioning Manager, Robert Mackenzie-Wilson and the Social Care team from Harrow Council.

Thursday 23rd November 2023, 1pm – 4pm
At the Old Lyonians, 74 Pinner View, Harrow HA1 4QF
