Its estimated there are over 10 million unpaid carers in the UK and that 2.5 million of these are also in employment. The contribution these unpaid carers make to the person they care for (and to their local communities in general) is invaluable.

Many businesses know they employ some unpaid carers, but there may be others they don’t know about. Many businesses support those carers in different ways but may want to look at other ways they can help – and some businesses may not be sure how to start supporting their employees. More than 600 people quit work to look after older and disabled relatives every day and so providing workplace support is vital in helping employees that are also unpaid carers.

We are a local charity with a mission to help unpaid carers in Sheffield, and that includes people that may also be in employment.
