Supporting Carers who Work



    “One in eight people in the UK (that’s 6.5 million) are currently combining paid work with unpaid caring responsibilities.” [Article from Zara Ross, Chief Executive at BEN].

    This means that in any organisation employing 100 people, there are likely to be at least 12 carers. In addition, a total of 625,000 people are experiencing mental and physical ill health as a direct consequence of the stress and physical demands of carers. And I would suggest the number can only rise.

    For each and every carer, these are discouraging and potentially devastating figures for their career. Reality is that staff can present as cool as cucumber at work but face insurmountable difficulties at home that are never spoken about. Inevitably, for some this takes a toll that causes them to resign.

    We work with employers to empower their caring staff to be able to cope. We build up their resilience and give them the power to speak up within their family and beyond, to muster help and share out the burden.
