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. From January 2023, we are no longer registering new participants.
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.
Work and caring: information for carers
Working for Carers has developed a series of factsheets for unpaid carers who are looking to move into employment or are balancing work with their caring role.
Our progress and learning: project evaluation
1,263 carers and former carers registered with the project. Participants are from all 33 London boroughs.
