Carers First Employment Support

Back to Support
Last Updated: 08/02/2024

The Employment Support team can help any carer who is in work and struggling or wanting support to maintain the dual roles, any carer who is wanting to find work or training, and any business who want to support their employees who have caring roles.

We provide information and support to help you access education and training, increasing your opportunity of finding work. Some of these sessions are geared specifically towards supporting young adult carers.

These sessions are delivered online and out in the community.

The service can also complete carer passports.

Our offer to Carers:

No two carers’ situations are the same, so we will offer person centred employment support for working carers and carers seeking experience or work-related opportunities, this will include:

• 1:1 support
• Development of CV’s
• Support with job applications
• Preparation for interviews, including mock interviews
• Information and signposting to courses
• Employment related advice
• Direct links into their carer champion in local job centres
• Signpost to services offering replacement care to enable the carers employment
• Access to digital resources eg: Jointly App
• Access to information and resources through EfC (Employer for Carers)
• Informal advocacy with their employers
• Development of a carer’s passport for those in employment

This is good for wellbeing because

  • It can help to reduce the stress brought on by working whilst providing essential care to a friend or family member.
  • It can help employers support their staff to continue working whilst in a caring role, therefore retaining staff.
  • It can help carers to begin work or training and focus on something that's just for them.
