Supporting hidden carers at work and home

Thursday, July 18, 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.

What will you learn 

  • What we will learn:
  • Gain a deeper understanding about the context of caring in the UK.
  • Learn about the impact that caring can have on individuals both in and out of the workplace.
  • Discuss considerations that should be given and support that can be offered to colleagues who provide care to others.
