Rights of carers

Anyone who is a carer has certain rights not least the right to a carer’s assessment from social services and, where appropriate, the provision of support services; rights to flexible working and a right not to be discriminated against.

A carer has a statutory right to have their own needs considered by a local authority when undertaking an assessment of their needs. E.g. if they want to work or undertake certain leisure activities then the local authority must take this into account when deciding what services they provide both to the carer and to the person they are looking after.

Carers may also be entitled to direct payments to enable them to purchase the services that they need. Employment rights will also arise. We offer expertise in this area.
