Developing a Carers Network

Ensuring your business understands those who have caring responsibilities will improve the engagement and wellbeing of your employees. This toolkit will help build an understanding of the business benefits for supporting an employee network for carers as well as offering practical advice for creating a successful network.

Working carers are five times more likely to experience severe anxiety or stress and consequential unplanned absence. One in five current working carers in the UK is likely to leave work all together1 This toolkit contains guidance that will enable your business to present the benefits and opportunities that come from introducing and supporting a carer’s network.
