1 in 7 employees also care for a loved one.
1 in 5 employees will leave work to care.
It costs between 100-150% of an employee's salary to rehire and retrain carers when they leave.
Who is a carer?
A carer is anyone who looks after a family member, partner or friend who needs help because of their illness, frailty(age), disability, a mental health problem or an addiction and cannot cope without their support. The care they provide is unpaid.
Caring for a loved one can be hugely rewarding. However, it can also be challenging. Carers are often overlooked in society, and left to struggle with little support. Because of these challenges, carers face higher rates of mental & physical ill health, social isolation and burnout.
