Weekly Roundup: Carer Positive in Isolation

Following the Government guidance at the start of the week, the whole Carers Scotland team, including Carer Positive, is now working from home. We are still endeavouring to support organisations and carers during this difficult time and continue with our normal work as best we can.

Despite these unusual circumstances, we have still been presenting awards and were thrilled to welcome Bon Accord Care as a Carer Positive Employer this week! Bon Accord Care have demonstrated real commitment to supporting their staff with caring responsibilities and are continuing to develop policies and practices which will improve on the strong foundation of support already in place. Well done to everyone involved in creating this supportive working environment.

Another bright point this week was Family Friendly Working Scotland's Top Employer Awards 2020, which saw many worthy organisations recognised for their positive working environments. Sue from the Carer Positive team was asked to be involved with the judging for this year's awards and was thrilled to see so many Carer Positive Employers included in the nominations, however we would like to particularly congratulate Scouts Scotland who won in the Best Third Sector Employer category. Well done to them and also to the whole team at Family Friendly Working Scotland for pulling together a fun and engaging online event!
