Be Part of Changing How Employers Support Unpaid Carers with Health Conditions

We know that unpaid carers often have health problems of their own and it's a struggle to balance this with work and caring. We plan to make some recommendations for employers about understanding the lives of unpaid carers and the different things employers could do to support carers who want to work.

Who are we looking for?

We would like to hear from you if you are living with an illness or health condition and you are an unpaid carer and this has affected your work, or ability to find work.

There are lots of ways to get involved, including:

  1. Co-designing some questions for focus groups and 1:1 interviews with carers. This will happen in late April/early May.
  2. Taking part in our 1:1 interviews and focus groups on the topic.  Interviews and focus groups will happen between May and the middle of July.
  3. Reviewing how we present the research findings, providing a critical eye and feedback to ensure that we say and ask for is focusing on the right support for unpaid carers in the workplace. This will happen in late September.

You can be involved in all of the above, or you can chose just one or two ways to be involved.

Interested?  Please complete this short form and we will get back to you soon

Highlighting the Positive Impact of the Right Social Care for Disabled Children

Working as part of the Disabled Children’s Partnership, we are looking to share the stories of families with disabled children and show positive experiences with the care sector.

We are looking for families who are interested in recording short videos or vlogs documenting certain day-to-day activities where social care helps.  These vlogs will be used as part of the Disabled Children’s Partnership Autumn social media campaign “This is Social Care”.

You can read more about the project here but if you are interested in taking part, please contact Ramzi Suleiman at: rsuleiman@carers.org.
