Employers for Carers Scheme

Employers for Carers Scheme helps small and medium-sized businesses to support and keep hold of the carers in their workforce by practical resources, advice and information

Juggling work with caring for a loved one can be exhausting. One in nine working people are looking after an older, ill or disabled loved one, and without the right support, one in six carers are forced to give up or cut back on their work to care.

Small and medium businesses can join online for free at Employers for Carers Scheme. Use the membership code #EFC1588 to register.
