Employers & Businesses

Good businesses need good people. In the current economic climate, there has never been a more important time to focus on the benefits of retaining skilled workers - and supporting your employees to work healthily and productively - rather than incurring the costs of recruiting and retraining new staff.

Employers for Carers Scheme 

Caring is an issue which faces all of us. Changing demographics and an ageing population mean that 3 in 5 people will end up caring for someone at some point in their lives. The number of carers in the UK is set to grow from 6 million to 9 million in the next 30 years. This is an issue none of us can afford to ignore.
