Supporting unpaid carers in employment

Research shows that around 600 people a day, in the UK, quit their job to care for a loved one who is older, disabled or seriously ill .

There is also evidence to show that the impact of staff turnover, absence and stress as a result of juggling work and caring could be costing UK businesses over £3.5 billion every year, so there are significant savings to be made by better supporting carers to manage work alongside caring.
