Keys rights every carer caring for adults should know are:-
A carer will be entitled to an assessment if it appears that a carer needs support. The carer's assessment must establish whether the carer is willing and able to continue providing care to the person they are caring for, what impact this has on the carer's wellbeing, what outcomes the carer wishes to achieve in day-to-day life, and whether the carer wishes to access education, training or recreational activities.
The carer will have the same rights to an assessment and support as the disabled adult themselves. Therefore, once a carer's assessment has been carried out, the local authority will see which of the carer's needs are eligible for support, and will then produce a support plan to meet the carer's needs.
Local authorities are under a duty to meet a carer's eligible needs, subject to financial assessment.
