Weekly Roundup: A Fantastic Achievement for the University of St Andrews

A huge congratulations are in order for the University of St Andrews who have now achieved an Exemplary level Carer Positive award. This is our highest level of award, which is presented to organisations who have a strong and well established culture of supporting carers in the workplace. It is evident that support for carers, among both staff and students, at the St Andrews has gone from strength and we were also encouraged to see that the response to the current Covid-19 pandemic has taken the particular challenges faced by carers into account. Well done to everyone involved!

In other news, we are pleased to share that the coronavirus advice page on the Carers UK website now contains advice regarding furlough (scroll down to the Guidance for Working Carers section). Please check this out if this is relevant to you as either an employer or an employee, particularly as lockdown has now been extended for at least another three weeks. You may also want to re-visit last week's blog where we shared links for sample furlough letters from ACAS.

As always, we will be sharing the most up to date information on our social media pages so please follow them and connect with us if you aren't already.
