Learn your rights: carer information day
Learn your rights as a carer and for the person you care for at The Brain Charity’s carers rights information day.
Anyone who is a carer is welcome to attend the free event, held at The Brain Charity’s centre on Norton Street on Wednesday, September 7th between 10am and 4pm.
You will be able to find out from legal professionals and academics how to put an appropriate care plan in place, support options and how to challenge inadequate or reduced care packages.
Professor Luke Clements, Chair in Law and Social Justice at the University of Leeds, will lead the event. Professor Clements is a former practising solicitor and human rights lawyer who was involved in drafting and scrutinising care legislation including the 2014 Care Act.
He specialises in using the law to combat the social exclusion experienced by disabled people and their carers, and how to break down the barriers people often face in accessing what they’re entitled to.
