Working for Carers is a London-wide project that supports unpaid carers, aged 25 or over, to move closer to employment. The project is led by Carers Trust and delivered by its network of 24 partners across London. Working for Carers is funded by the European Social Fund and The National Lottery Community Fund.

Working for Carers aims to:

  • Support carers to pursue their employment goals through confidence building and skills development.
  • Offer a flexible service that considers individual needs and ambitions.
  • Engage with local businesses and organisations to create employment, training and volunteering opportunities for carers.
  • Highlight the benefits of employing carers, adopting carer friendly policies, and understanding the needs of carers in the workplace.
