Supporting hidden carers at work and home

Thursday, June 27, 2024 Online

This year during Carers Week we are helping to raise awareness of caring, highlight the challenges carers face and recognise the contribution they make to families and communities.

It’s also an opportunity to shine a light on what caring is to help people who don’t think of themselves as having caring responsibilities to identify as careers and access the resources available to them.

Carers support friends and family with a disability, mental or physical illness, addiction, or who need extra support as they grow older. The challenges for these individuals are often overlooked in the workplace, but we know that caring can have a huge impact on a person’s working and personal life.

Carers develop a whole range of skills that are an asset to any organisation, and we should focus on how we can support, retain and uplift carers in the workplace.

This webinar is hosted by Kate Adams, I&D expert from Inclusive Employers.

Kate has experience working in inclusion and tackling social mobility within organisations throughout her career in both the UK and Overseas. Find out more about Kate.
