In Detail

What would you do if your loved one had a medical appointment and needed your help to attend, but your boss expects you to be at work at the same time?

A carer is anyone who supports a family member, partner or friend who needs help due to illness, frailty, disability, a mental health problem or addiction and cannot cope without their help. The care they provide is unpaid, unlike a professional healthcare worker.

Do you know who the carers are in your workforce? Have you considered their wellbeing?

The Working for Carer scheme is not just for your employees, it is good for business. Research shows that supporting staff to effectively juggle their home and work life, and continue in employment holds valuable benefits for business, including:

  • Staff Retention
  • Reduce Absence
  • Increased productivity
  • Improved Morale

Forward Carers works with businesses to offer the Working for Carers accreditation scheme including downloadable 'carer-aware' resources, online training, staff discounts and much more. Signing up for Working for Carers allows businesses to care for their whole workforce, extend employee benefits programmes at low cost..... and ultimately demonstrate great social corporate responsibility!
