Carers at Work

There are currently over three million carers working in the UK; many of us will find ourselves becoming carers overnight while still holding down a full-time job.   As the population ages, increasing numbers of us are balancing work with caring for elderly or sick parents.  Some of us may care for our partners, disabled children or other family members.  This information and support is intended to make it easier for you to cope with work and care.
