Over the last 2 years we have been participating in a national pilot to develop a wide range of support for carers in employment and the organisations they work for.
A report launched this week by Carers UK reveals that more than 600 people quit paid work to look after older, sick and disabled relatives every day.
Earlier this year, Carers Support Centre provided evidence to The Work and Pensions Select Committee inquiry into the employment support that unpaid carers receive. The committee produced its recommendations on Support for carers and the Government has just published its response to these.
We have been involved in a recent Select Committee Inquiry into the Department of Work and Pensions support for working carers.
