Employment information and advice for carers

If you are caring for someone and want to combine paid work with your caring responsibilities, you can get local help and advice from the Carers’ Development Employment Service. The Careers Adviser can give you information, advice and support on employment, training and volunteering, helping you to stay in work, or to look for employment, volunteering or training opportunities. The service can also support you as a working carer to seek more flexibility so you are able to combine work with your caring role.

More information is available from Carers.uk

Training for carers

There is various training available for carers to help you in your caring role, such as practical skills training sessions, personal development sessions and help and support if you are new to caring and not had any previous support.

Carers can also apply for funding to take up other training opportunities that will help you get back into employment and help with life skills.
