Learn about carers' rights


Know your rights as an unpaid carer through our Carer Aware project. Carer Aware project is a joint project between Welsh Government, who provided the funding, Carers Trust Wales and Carers Wales to empower unpaid carers to be actively involved in making decisions in services to look after the people they care and themselves as unpaid carers.  Find out more about the Carer Aware project.

Watch our video for healthcare professionals that explains the rights that unpaid carers have. There are also handouts to accompany the animations.
