COVID-19: supporting carers in the workplace
Carers are those providing care and support for people that is not part of a paid job. This might include looking after someone who is disabled or unwell, helping with their household chores or shopping for someone who cannot go themselves. During the COVID-19 crisis, this may have become more difficult as we all face restrictions on how we interact with others.
Business in the Community have created this guide to help employers to provide the right support for their working carers and ensure their wellbeing. It includes advice about your organisation’s policies, ways to communicate with carers, and sources of further information. It is presented in a checklist, so you can take stock of what you are already doing and what you might need to work on.
