Your rights and self-advocacy

The Carers UK Looking after someone guide is for anyone who cares for family or friends. The guide outlines your rights as a carer and gives an overview of the practical and financial support available.

We encourage all carers to read Being Heard – a guide to self-advocacy for carers. The guide has been produced by Carers UK to help carers speak up for themselves and the person they care for.

Devon Citizens Advice Bureau (CAB) offer advice and information to carers on a range of topics including benefitsworkdebt and moneyhousinghealthcare and much more.

You can call the Devon-wide CAB Adviceline on 0344 4111 444 or drop into your local advice centre:
