Services for carers
Rights and entitlements
As a carer you have the right to:
- an assessment
- request flexible working
- not be discriminated against.
To ask for an assessment phone Devon Carers on 08456 434 435 or book online at www.devoncarers.org.uk/book-an-appointment Carer Health and Wellbeing Checks are available from Devon Carers, some GP practices and some pharmacies. If you can’t leave the person you look after, it may be possible to arrange care for them while you have the check.
Carers UK has detailed information about your right to flexible working, including types of flexible working and information about making a flexible working request.
Carers UK also produces an annual Carers Rights Guide. This explains your rights and tells you where you can get more support and practical help.
