Supporting working carers in your workplace

VOCAL is marking Carers Rights Day, next Thursday 26th November 2020, with a special event/workshop aimed at supporting employers and line managers to set up internal carer support networks in their own organisations.

Since the Coronavirus there has been a steady increase in the number of people caring for someone else, with many now struggling to balance this unpaid caring role with their employment responsibilities. This free workshop is suitable for managers and supervisors in any workplace including public sector services.

Standard Life and Carers Scotland, in partnership with VOCAL, will deliver this free online workshop, sharing experiences and best practice of supporting carers at work, and linking you to other services and external support.

To find out more and book your place on this free workshop, please go to our Eventbrite Supporting Working Carers page.

For more information please contact Hayley Burton at VOCAL on hburton@vocal.org.uk.
