Workshop: supporting unpaid carers and the Carer’s Leave Act

Date
26 June 2024, 2pm to 3pm
Location
Online
Organisation
Social Care Wales and Carers Wales

There are more than 223,000 unpaid carers in employment in Wales. Many employers don’t know their employees are unpaid carers, which often means they stay hidden and without support.

Attending this session will count towards one hour of your continuous professional development (CPD) if you’re registered with us.

Who this event is for

This event is for employers of registered adult social care workers, including Responsible Individuals and registered managers.

What we’ll cover

This session is a great opportunity to:

  • start a conversation about caring, whether this is about your own caring situation or that of the colleagues you’re managing
  • understand the Carer’s Leave Act and legislation that will support unpaid carers in the workplace
  • explore workplace and external support options that can help
  • reach out to others in your team who might not realise that they’re an unpaid carer.
