It's now two years since we first came to NESTA with our working carers network idea. Building on the services that we provide through the Employers for Carers forum, we were looking to develop a model with the London Fire Brigade for an employee carers network which could be tailored and rolled out to other employers in the future.
As one of the ten Age Unlimited projects, our mission is to help employers support carers through our Employers for Carers service. Thanks to support from NESTA, we're building on this offering by helping older carers extend their working lives and combine their caring and work commitments healthily and productively.
