Carers Rights Day Thursday 25 November
Each year Carers Rights Day brings organisations across the UK together to help carers in their local community know their rights and find out how to get the help and support they are entitled to.
This year Carers Rights Day is on Thursday 25 November.
Having the right information at the right time can make all the difference when you’re looking after someone.
Every day 6,000 people become carers but often it’s not something we’ve planned for. This Carers Rights Day we’re focusing on supporting people to prepare for the future through our theme: Caring for Your Future.
White Ribbon Day 2021 November 25
White Ribbon Day is held on November 25th, also known as the International Day for the Eradication of Violence against Women and is an annual day to raise awareness of family violence. The day is run by the White Ribbon Campaign.
Violence against women is a global problem, and we need to do something about it.
On White Ribbon Day Thursday 25 November, and the 16 days to end violence against women that follow, we are asking people in their communities, organisations and workplaces, to come together, and say ‘no’ to violence against women.
