Being a working carer brings a unique set of pressures that often go unrecognised at work. However, with over 3 million working carers in the UK alone there is a real need to ensure the right support is in place to help carers integrate their careers with managing their responsibilities at home.
Our practical carers workshop, based upon first-hand experiences of the challenges involved, is tailored specifically to the needs of carers within the workplace. Taking place in a group setting to help develop support networks within an organisation, the workshop places emphasis on strategies to help carers focus upon their own well-being and tips to help prioritisation and the management of time, resources and energy.
