Carers Going Back To Work

If you want to start or return to work, there are some things to consider and many schemes that can help you as a carer.

There is support available to boost your confidence, if it has been a while since you worked and to help you regain skills to ease you back to work. This includes:

  • training, guidance and work placement programmes
  • work experience, volunteering and job trials
  • help with starting your own business
  • help with child care or caring responsibilities

It is also important to remember that you may have developed skills from your caring role. 

If you are a carer and want to return to work, you may be able to get help from Jobcentre Plus. The Work Preparation Support for Carers scheme offers advice and training.

Please see the NHS UK and Gov.UK websites for further information on Carers Going Back To Work.
