We understand that this is an extremely challenging time for employers and working carers. You may have some carers working for you who are particularly worried about the person they care for during this uncertain time.
We’d like to remind you that the Employers for Carers digital resource, run by Carers UK, gives you access to numerous resources that will help support yourselves and your employees who have caring responsibilities.
Carers UK have recently updated the Employers for Carers site and now when you log on, you will see a ‘COVID-19 Guidance’ tab on the right-hand side toolbar. When you click on this link, it will take you through to various information, as well as the latest government guidance on coronavirus. You will also find a useful frequently asked questions page, as well as a ‘Wellbeing Action Plan’ Carers UK have created, with some tailored tips on keeping a positive frame of mind during this time for both carers and those they care for.
To access the resources, simply log on to www.efcdigital.org and register using your email address and the access code which is: #EFC1946
