Why supporting the Carers in your workforce makes business sense

Forward Carers is having a free breakfast awareness session for organisations, to help them identify and support family carers, balancing work and care/support commitments. 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 their help. The care they provide is unpaid, unlike a professional healthcare worker.

If you are a CEO, HR professional or a senior manager and your office is based in the Birmingham area, then come along and learn how your business can make some small effective changes to improve the wellbeing of family carers and reduce the need to replace staff and lower sickness levels.

Places are limited. Car parking is available on site, as well as good bus links along Hagley Road.
