Supporting you with your return to work

1 in 3 people will have to care for a family member or loved one at some point and that often means taking an extended break from work.

We currently have nearly 2,000 carers registered with us who are unemployed and would like to work. Of those:

  • Nearly 500 carers are actively seeking work;
  • Nearly 1,000 feel their skills are out of date or they lack the confidence to take the next step;
  • Over 1,000 “feel hopeless and don’t know where to start”.

We’re with you all the way
