Action Carer Positive aims to encourage employers to create a supportive working environment for carers in the workplace.
Unfortunately many carers give up work because the job of juggling their work and caring responsibilities simply becomes too much. Supporting carers to manage the sometimes difficult job of balancing work with caring responsibilities can deliver real benefits to employers as well as helping individuals and their families.
The Carer Positive award is presented to employers in Scotland who have a working environment where carers are valued and supported. Carer Positive employers recognise the importance of retaining experienced members of staff, reducing absence, and cutting down on avoidable recruitment costs.
If you are working and caring, why not tell your employer about Carer Positive at: https://www.carerpositive.org/
