Yes! You do have rights as a carer - This growing section (which is continually being developed) will advise you on exactly what those rights are.

Under the Carers and Disabled Children Act 2000, carers aged 16 or over who provide a regular and substantial amount of care for someone aged 18 or over have the right to an assessment of their needs as a carer. View more here >>
