Greater Manchester reaches out to employers to support their working carers

 3 in 5 people will become a carer at some point in their life time. Employers have an important role to play in supporting their workforce balance work with their caring responsibilities. Evidence shows it is good for business too; reducing sickness and turnover, and improving staff experience.

The toolkit has been developed by Greater Manchester Health and Social Care Partnership with the support of public sector organisations and for the benefit of all working carers in Greater Manchester.

Carers have been at the heart of the development of this toolkit, as over 400 local carers have shared their experience and shaped the toolkit.
