Young carers and adult carers are raising awareness in Powys towns and communities on National Carers Rights Day (November 21)!

In Brecon and Welshpool outreach workers will be visiting shops and businesses talking about the charity Credu and the support it offer to carers in the county. They are also going into solicitors' offices and the GP surgeries to discuss carers rights. They will also be talking to shoppers about what they think about carers rights.

Outreach workers in mid Powys will be in the foyer of Tesco in Llandrindod wells from until 1pm. They will be talking to members of the public and staff about their experiences of being a carer and what rights they believe they have and want. They will collate these views and record them for Credu's quarterly report. Whilst they are having these conversations they will be listening to what is important in people’s lives and if there is anything they can do to support them.

In Knighton Credu is delivering an information stall and group talk in St Edward's Church. During this event food is served and it is a great opportunity to meet other people and listen to what is on offer in your local area. This is open to the public.

In the Credu shop in Machynlleth a raffle is being held all day with great prizes. There will be people to speak with all day around what matters to carers.

Young carers and an outreach worker will also be attending the Senedd, in Cardiff Bay, to discuss the Welsh Assembly's proposal to support young carers in Wales.

A Credu spokesperson said: "Our young people are so passionate about the rights of carers and their families and this is a wonderful opportunity for them to have their voice heard in an arena where decisions are made."
