Carers (Equal Opportunities) Act 2004

The Carers (Equal Opportunities) Act 2004 is an Act of the Parliament of the United Kingdom (2004 c. 15) aimed at helping carers achieve fair access to training, work and leisure opportunities.

The Act requires assessments to be offered to carers, to consider the needs of carers in relation to leisure, education, training and work. Not all carers will wish to pursue all of these opportunities but practitioners completing assessments with the carer should be able to signpost carers to other relevant agencies.
