Working with Leeds employers to support working carers


What is a working carer?

A carer is anyone who cares, unpaid, for a friend or family member who due to illness, disability, a mental health problem or an addiction cannot cope without their support. A working carer is someone who has caring responsibilities, but is also in paid employment.

Evidence suggests that the numbers of working carers will continue to increase. This has significant implications for both carers and employers across the city. Carers Leeds is working with local employers to provide a rigorous and consistent approach to supporting working carers in Leeds.

We offer support for both employers and employees. For more information select one of the buttons below.
