Unpaid carers in Derbyshire are being invited to attend an event hosted by Derbyshire Carers Association to mark this year’s Carers’ Rights Day on Thursday 23 November 2023.

Carers will be able to find out more about their rights and access free legal, financial and employment advice at the event at the Post Mill Centre, Market Street, South Normanton, Derbyshire, DE55 2EJ from 10am to 1pm on Thursday 23 November.

If you’re not able to attend this event in person, you can call Derbyshire Carers Association on tel: 01773 833 833 for support or visit our Carers’ Rights Day information page.

Derbyshire Carers Association supports more than 6,000 adult carers and 350 young carers each year and delivers a wide range of services on our behalf.

Our Cabinet Member for Adult Care, Councillor Natalie Hoy said:

“We’re incredibly grateful for the invaluable support Derbyshire carers provide for their loved ones and we’re committed to supporting them in return.
