Practical advice and information for carers.

Work can be important for your wellbeing, income and maintaining social contacts.  Think carefully before giving up your job, it can provide you with financial security, time away and a sense of identity.

If you are balancing a paid job with caring for a family member or friend, you may need information about how your employer might be able to help you and your legal rights at work. 

Carers UK (opens in a new window) has information about what you are entitled to in your workplace as a carer, including your right to request flexible working, take time off for emergencies and work without discrimination.
