Some organisations we have worked with have developed ‘Carer Passports’ as part of their staff wellbeing policy.

Staff Carer Networks
A Staff Carer Network is an internal network within your workplace that is set up to support the employees who are Carers. A Staff Carer Network can be both a source of information for Carers as well as a way to improve their wellbeing and provide an opportunity for peer support.
Flexible Working Policy
Many Carers report that having the opportunity for flexible working can provide invaluable benefits and improvement to both the care that they provide and also their own mental wellbeing.
