Advice for employers

1 in 7 working people are juggling their paid jobs with caring responsibilities for someone at home.

Without support 1 in 6 of those carers give up or cut back work because the challenges of balancing their work and caring responsibilities simply becomes too much.

Having a ‘carer friendly’ workplace for your employees can make a significant difference to retention and productivity, and help you get the best results for your organisation and staff.
