Carers & Employment Project
1 in 7 of the workforce are juggling paid employment whilstcaring for someone who is older, disabled or seriously ill and without the right support, many unpaid carers may have to reduce their working hours orgive up work completely to care. Recognising the needs of carers, businesses can benefit from reduced recruitment and training costs and retaining their experienced staff, whilst reaping the rewards of creating a supportive working environment for carers.
Ultimately, it makes business sense to care for carers.
Every-One, in partnership with Carers FIRST, are delivering a project funded through Lincolnshire County Council's Better Care Fund to help support carers wishing to return to or remain in employment and helping employers to become carer aware.
As part of the project, Every-One provide practical advice and support tailored to individual businesses around the county, helping them to support unpaid carers in the workplace. The support provided is free and aims to help organisations develop and implement ‘carer friendly’ policies and good practice, complemented with a carer awareness training programme for staff and an opportunity to undertake the Lincolnshire Carers Quality Award.
Small and Medium Enterprises based in Lincolnshire, will also be invited to become a member of ‘Employers for Carers’, which is FREE under Lincolnshire County Council’s umbrella membership, giving them access to a wide range or resources, tools and e-learning opportunities for both the organisation and employees to access.
Employers for Carers provides practical ‘hands on’ advice and support for employers. For more information, please visit: www.employersforcarers.org.uk
