Supporting Unpaid Carers in Employment Webinar


How and why your organisation should support the unpaid carers in your employment.

 

Derbyshire Carers Association (DCA) have teamed up with The University of Derby, the Chamber of Commerce and other major employers and SMEs to help support unpaid carers in employment.

 

Save the date - Friday 23 October 2020 9am – 10:30am

 

Our online webinar provides an opportunity to learn about the issue of unpaid caring, how as an employer you can identify and support those who manage caring responsibilities alongside their work and introduces our Carers in Employment Initiative.

 

The Initiative aims to support and encourage organisations to recruit and retain those staff who, due to their unpaid caring responsibilities, are at risk of leaving the workforce as a result of stress, ill health, lack of understanding and/or simply lack of time.

 

As part of the Initiative, we will recruit organisations across Derbyshire, to sign up to our carers pledge and show their commitment to unpaid carers within their organisation. In signing the pledge, employers will benefit from free training, resources and ongoing support from DCA.
