Supporting Carers in the Workplace: a toolkit for Employers

£139.00 + VAT

It is estimated that 1 in 7 in the workforce are carers of someone elderly, disabled or seriously ill, so it makes economic sense to provide support to such employees in order to retain them in your business and ensure their engagement and productivity.

This toolkit provides a guide to the tried and tested measures and policies employers can introduce to support the carers in their workforce in whom they have invested significant time and money. In addition, the toolkit provides a model policy, tips for line managers on how to support the carers in their team and factsheets for carers themselves on sources of help.

This product is a digital download and will be delivered to your e-mail address.


The ‘Supporting Carers in the Workplace toolkit’ includes:

  • A Guide for Managers – practical guidance to support any carers in your team.
  • Model carer policy – simply use it as it is, or slot in your enhanced provision.
  • Best practice ideas – ideas that employers of different sizes in different sectors have introduced successfully.
  • Top tips for carers – useful ideas for your employees with caring responsibilities.
  • Helpful organisations – if you are caring for an adult or a disabled child, some of these organisations might be able to help you.
