Landmark report calls for more support to help carers juggle work and care

A joint report, published by the Government, Carers UK and Employers for Carers, argues that better support for working carers would give businesses and the UK economy a much needed boost and would save taxpayers £1.3 billion a year.

The report warns that as well as losing money, businesses risk losing valuable, experienced employees if action is not urgently taken to enable people with caring responsibilities to remain in work.
