Carer friendly employers in York
We’re delighted to announce that York Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, has been awarded our Carer Friendly Employer Charter by committing to support members of their workforce who have caring responsibilities outside work.
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, by providing the right support at the right time to allow carers to continue their paid work.
The Trust employs over 9000 staff in eight hospitals and across the community, and has worked hard during an extremely difficult year to introduce flexible working policies, raise awareness of caring, allocate carer champions and signpost staff to support available.
Our team can support organisations in York working towards carer friendly policies, for more information have a look at our Working Carers pages.
