Event description

Description


Did you know, 1 in 9 of your workforce will also be caring for an older, disabled, or seriously ill family member or friend, but with the number of carers in the UK set to rise, the proportion of carers in your workforce is also likely to increase significantly. Would you like to know more about how best to support your employees who are carers?

This event, primarily aimed at HR representatives or managers, will explain about Darlington Borough Councils FREE umbrella membership of Employers for Carers (EfC). The umbrella membership is accessed via Darlington Borough Council, and gives you and your employees full access to the website, providing your staff with information to support them in their caring role and giving your managers the information they need to support their staff who are carers.
