Your rights as a carer

The Social Services and Wellbeing Act (2014) places specific legal rights and entitlements on Local Authorities to support carers. Knowing your rights can help you to get the support that you need.

These rights include:

  • the right to have your needs assessed by your local authority,
  • the right to receive direct payments so that you can choose what services to have, and
  • rights in the workplace.
