Carers UK Being Heard: a guide to self-advocacy for carers

Being Heard is a self-advocacy guide, developed by Carers UK, to help carers navigate what can at times be a confusing system. When we’re caring, it can be hard to get our voice heard. We might not know what help to ask for, or indeed who to ask. Self-advocacy is about learning the skills to speak up for ourselves and for the person we’re caring for.
