Caring and working

We have enormous respect for those who combine work with informal care. For many carers, it is a challenge to find a good balance between caring for their loved one and turning up at work. Our advice: talk to your employer about your care duties. There are often more possibilities than you might think, such as working flexible hours or taking temporary leave if necessary.

The links below can help you prepare for a discussion with your manager.

If you want some more tools for combining care and work, free online lessons are available at
