Employers for Carers

Slough Borough Council is a member of Carers UK ‘Employers for Carers’ (EfC).

This provides information and support to organisations to enable them to be a more carer-friendly employer. The council has an umbrella membership which means small or medium employers in Slough (with fewer than 250 staff) can access the resources through our membership, free of charge. To date, seven local businesses have subscribed.

1 in 9 working people are carers. 

In Slough, as of 2011 there are over 11,500 carers. Many are juggling work with looking after an older, ill or disabled loved one, and that number is rising.

Without the right support, 1 in 6 carers are forced to give up or cut back work to care.

Do you know how many carers are in your workforce? Can you afford to lose them?

Slough Borough Council is proud to be working with Employers for Carers to help SMEs and health partners in Slough support and keep hold of the carers in their workforces.

Practical resources, advice and information is available online at Employment For carers - Carers UK. It is designed to help you look after staff who are juggling work alongside caring for someone.
