Carer friendly employers in York

We’re delighted to announce that two more employers in York, Vale of York CCG and My Health, have joined our Carer Friendly Employer Charter by committing to support members of their workforce who have caring responsibilities at home.

One in six working carers give up work because the challenge of juggling their work and caring responsibilities simply becomes too much. So having a ‘carer friendly’ workplace for employees can make a significant difference to staff retention and productivity, by providing the right support at the right time to allow carers to continue their paid work.

Vale of York Clinical Commissioning Group and My Health group of GP surgeries have worked hard to introduce policies, raise awareness of caring, signpost staff to the support available to them and connect with local carer groups.

Our team can support organisations working towards carer friendly policies, for more information have a look at our Working Carers pages.
