Carers Rights Day

Advice for employers

  1. People may not identify themselves as carers. Use explanatory questions such as
    ‘Do you look after someone who can’t manage without your help?’ rather than ‘Are
    you a carer?’
  2. Publicise your activity and give carers plenty of notice. This might involve
    contacting your local newspaper or trade press or putting up posters in work.
  3. Follow up on your activity by telling staff that it took place and who was involved.
    This will raise awareness among employees and managers who couldn’t attend.
