Working for Carers

Working for Carers

Working for Carers is a London-wide project that supports unpaid carers, aged 25 or over, to move closer to employment. The project is led by Carers Trust and delivered by its network of 24 partners across London. Working for Carers is funded by the European Social Fund and The National Lottery Community Fund.

We have several success stories where carers are employed by smaller local or larger national companies, like Mehrdad Azadisoleimanieh who secured a job as a Selling and Service Partner at the high-end department store, John Lewis in Westfield White City.
