Forward Carers is committed to creating Carer Friendly Communities where everyone can play a part in improving Carer well-being, including Carer support at work. In the UK 1 in 7 workers also provides unpaid care for someone who couldn’t manage without them due to frailty, disability, or physical or mental health issues. Without support, 600 employees each day quit work due to the challenges of juggling work and care. With the average age of taking on caring responsibilities 45 – 64 years, it’s likely these are some of your most valued and senior staff.
The right support for working Carers can help you retain your best staff, improve sickness absence and reduce recruitment costs. Join our 30-minute interactive discovery session where we’ll cover the business case for Carer Friendly workplaces, share top tips and easy wins to help working Carers thrive through our Workplace training offers, and show you how you can gain your Carer Friendly Commitment Mark, certifying you as a Carer Friendly Employer.
