Carer’s Week 2021

It is estimated that 5 million people juggle work and care in the UK, and this figure is increasing with many employees give up work to manage their caring responsibilities.

It’s Carer’s Week from 7 – 13 June and many employers looking to retain carers in their workforce are considering how they can support employees who have caring responsibilities.  Although there is statutory provision for leave for parents, there is currently no such provision beyond emergency arrangements for dependents, or making a request for flexible working for those who care for adults.

If this is something your organisation wants to move forwards with but you may not be able to offer paid leave, we have put together a template carer policy which has similar provisions to Parental Leave that you may find useful.
