About this event

** POSTPONEMENT NOTICE **

We’ve had some feedback ahead of our event, and it has become apparent that many people are unable to attend the event due to their caring responsibilities and the format and timing of the event (school pick-ups).

In light of this, we’ve decided to postpone this event to the new year. We really feel this subject is of great importance and relevance to staff members across the Knowledge Quarter and hence we’ll move it to a date and time that’s more accessible for staff who are carers. We apologise for the oversight in our part and any inconvenience caused to you.

Events Manager, Knowledge Quarter

---------------------------------------------------------------------

This event will be part of our wellbeing special interest group series, open to all KQ staff. This meeting will bring together people who are interested in practises that can improve and support the wellbeing of staff with caring responsibilities in the KQ.

Across the UK today, 6.5 million people are carers, supporting a loved one who is older, disabled or seriously ill (Carers UK). 1.3 million people provide over 50 hours of unpaid care per week. Furthermore, in 2020 the rate of children under 18 years in care went up to 67 out of 10,000 (up from 60 in 2015) (CORAM). Every day another 6,000 people take on a caring responsibility in the UK.

Although caring can have many positive and rewarding aspects, there are lots of reasons why caring can have an impact on your day to day life, and why you may need support. This event aims to address some of the issues around this theme, considering flexible working policies, sign posting local expertise on caring, and how KQ partners may be able to share best practise and support each other.

We are the focal point for one of the greatest knowledge clusters anywhere in the world, located in a small area around King’s Cross, the Euston Road and Bloomsbury.

Within a few hundred metres you can find knowledge resources ranging from the world’s earliest books and manuscripts to the latest fashion and creative designs and cutting-edge medical research.

As a gateway to knowledge of every kind, we open doors for visitors, students, researchers and people who live and work in this dynamic part of London.

As a space to interact and share ideas in close proximity there is nowhere else like it.

Individually, our members offer a dazzling array of knowledge resources. Our new partnership brings them all together for the first time.

Knowledge is fuel for the brain. Get everyone connected and the possibilities are endless.
