How to support working carers
Legal & General

With over 5 million working carers in the UK, later life care is now a societal and employer issue that can no longer be ignored.

The demands of caring are significant. Seven in every ten working carers worry about juggling work and care; this is particularly concerning, because working carers are more likely to suffer physical or mental ill health and may be feeling unsupported in their workplace.

The pandemic has exasperated this problem further, as 2.8 million workers became carers overnight, many of whom are still juggling these responsibilities, which means returning to or maintaining work could become extremely difficult for many people going forward.

Putting support in place to help carers remain in work, creates a more supportive organisational culture, but it also has financial benefits for companies. According to Carers UK, it’s estimated that £8.2 billion could be gained economically, by introducing more supportive practices in the workplace.

In this webinar, Legal & General and a panel of experts will explore:

  • How care is translating into the workplace across: health and wellbeing, financial wellbeing and diversity and inclusion

  • The future impact on the workforce

  • What can you do to better support working carers?

Let’s rethink how we support working carers; together we can make a difference.
