Supporting Working Carers

Help working carers balance their jobs with their caring responsibilities

Are you doing enough to support working carers?

In the UK, there are over three million people in employment who also have caring responsibilities. By supporting working carers, organisations can attract and retain staff, as well as reduce stress, sick leave and absenteeism whilst improving the lives of those carers and the people they care for. Our Supporting Working Carers training combines subject matter expert and lived experience interviews with dramas, and explores best practice strategies.

With our in-browser editing tool, you can now tailor any of the courses in real-time to reflect your organisation’s diversity policies. Edits are clearly visible as you make them and results can easily be shared with your colleagues via a unique link.
