Know Your Rights


Welcome to the Know Your Rights pack for young carers in England

This pack aims to make you aware of your rights – your human rights, your legal rights, and your rights to access things like benefits, support and advice.

It has now been updated to include your new rights under the Care Act 2015 and Children and Families Act 2015

Need to know where to find things out in a hurry? This pack is designed to easily link to areas you are interested in, and signpost to external information when needed.  It has lots of links to useful and interesting resources that can help you – and help raise awareness about young carers’ issues!
