Enabling carers to have a voice and realise a life outside caring

Juggling care and work

Construction_worker.jpgIf you are trying to juggle caring with paid employment you are not alone. The UK has over three million working carers - 1 in 7 of the workforce. It’s common for working carers not to tell their employer or even colleagues about their responsibilities at home. You may worry that disclosing your caring responsibilities at work will jeopardise your job.

As an employee it’s worth knowing your employment rights and finding out about things that could make all the difference to your working life.
