About Working for Carers

Working for Carers supports unpaid carers and former carers to move into or closer to employment. The project is led by Carers Trust and delivered by Network Partners (local carer organisations) across all London boroughs. Working for Carers is funded by the European Social Fund and The National Lottery Community Fund until 31 March 2023.

Carers have accessed free support, tailored to meet their individual needs. This has included: help with job-searching, applications & CVs, and interview techniques; wellbeing support; IT skills; and access to training and volunteering opportunities.
