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.

Motivating, inspiring and informing you

Looking for a new job starts with a positive approach. Our experienced advisors listen to you carefully in a confidential and non-judgmental atmosphere. We aim to give you access to free support, designed to meet your individual needs and delivered in your local area.

A trusted circle for listening and caring

We appreciate that as a carer you may have been out of the job market for a while and may need the support to boost your confidence and update your job searching skills. Our local Job Clubs provide an inspiring environment where you can meet other carers, overcome and manage feelings of guilt about doing something for yourself.

Creating opportunities for carers

In an effort to create flexible and sustainable employment, training and volunteering opportunities for carers, we engage with local businesses. We highlight them the benefits of employing carers and help them understand the need for carers in the workplace.

Working for Carers

It’s always rewarding to see an unpaid carer gaining confidence and positivity during the programme and secure a job that fits their schedule.

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.
