Any business in Southampton can sign up to Our carer friendly company campaign.  It is a completely free except for your own time.

Our Carer Friendly Company charter is structured to encourage company/business colleagues to review if they could be carer friendly.

The key principles of the charter are:

  • Have a pro-active approach to unpaid carers and aspire to create an environment in which their needs are met within the boundaries identified by the company.
  • Develop procedures to inform unpaid carers of external support services available to them.
  • Take a pro-active approach in identifying carers within a company workforce and include generic policies and/or procedures protecting the rights of unpaid carers.

Interested! We have created  3 short videos to show you what being a Carer Friendly Company might look like in practice, and why you might become one.
