Can you afford to lose the people who make your business work?

We are proud to work with Employers for Carers to help small and medium-sized businesses support and keep hold of employees who combine a job with domestic caring responsibilities.

Across the UK three million workers juggle paid work with the care they provide to a family member, loved one, or friend. Employers have a key role in supporting carers while at work. By adopting a flexible approach to work, both the employer and the employee can benefit significantly. The many social and business benefits of proactively supporting working carers include:

  • attract and retain staff
  • reduce levels of stress
  • increase productivity
  • reduce the days lost through sick leave
  • improve service delivery
  • increase cost savings
  • improve people management

Practical resources, advice and information is available for both employers and employees online at
