Do You Care? Event For Employers
Do you know who the carers are in your workforce?
What would you do if your loved one had a medical appointment and needed your help to attend, but your boss expects you to be at work at the same time?
A carer is anyone who supports a family member, partner or friend who needs help due to illness, frailty, disability, a mental health problem or addiction and cannot cope without help. The care they provide is unpaid, unlike a professional healthcare worker.
Forward Carers works with businesses to offer the Working for Carers accreditation scheme including downloadable 'carer-aware' resources, online training, staff discounts and much more.
Signing up for Working for Carers allows businesses to care for their whole workforce, extend employee benefits programmes at low cost..... and ultimately demonstrate great social corporate responsibility!
This event is for CEO's, HR professionals, Senior Managers and those who have an interest in workplace wellbeing.
