Are you a working carer?

Continuing to work whilst caring can help you to have a better balance in your life and provide you with social interaction outside of your caring role.

But staying in work or returning to work can be daunting; you may find it helpful to talk to your employer about taking some time off or working flexibly.

Many carers consider giving up work but it is important to understand the implications this could have on your income, quality of life and future pension entitlements.

If you find it difficult to balance work and caring, we are here for you.

We have a regular meet up for working carers or anyone wanting to return to work or a volunteer role.

The group meet on the last Wednesday of each month at Al Campo Lounge (London Road, Brighton) 6-8pm.
Come along to hear guest speakers, meet other carers that are balancing work and care or want to get back into work and have a nice cup of tea or coffee with our staff.

There are also a wealth of free resources available online for carers.
