SCIE STATEMENT – Carers Rights Day

30 November 2012

Responding to Carers Rights Day, SCIE's Chief Executive, Andrea Sutcliffe, says:

I am so pleased that Carers UK has organised Carers Rights Day to highlight the importance of getting information to carers. Every year more than two million people take on caring responsibilities, many of whom will be under pressure and bewildered by the complex systems they have to deal with. It is critical that carers get the support they need and deserve and that information comes from credible and trusted sources.

The Social Care Institute for Excellence has an important role to play and the carers page on our website has lots of information about carers rights and how services can support them. Our new website Find Me Good Care is an invaluable source of advice and guidance that carers can turn to when they need reliable information.
