Proud to be Carer Positive

Over 416,00 employees in Scotland are now working in 180 Carer Positive awarded organisations, and these numbers are growing constantly. You can see the full list of organisations who have received a Carer Positive award at the bottom of this page.

Our Carer Positive awards are flexible in criteria and therefore can be achieved by any organisation, no matter what size or sector. We are always happy to discuss questions or concerns that you might have regarding becoming Carer Positive as taking steps to support carers in the workplace is probably easier than you think!

Check out the rest of our website for more information on our Carer Positive awards; the benefits of supporting carers in the workplace for both employers and staff, and how you can apply so your organisation can be acknowledged as a Carer Positive Employer.

Young Scot is the 100th Carer Positive employer in Scotland!

We are delighted to announce that Young Scot is the 100th organisation to be recognised as a Carer Positive Employer in Scotland.


Young Scot chief executive Louise Macdonald said:

“We’re thrilled to become the one hundredth Carer Positive employer and I’d encourage all organisations to get involved in the scheme. It’s simply the right thing to do for your employees, your team and your workplace and being a Carer Positive Employer will help us to attract and retain talented people at Young Scot.

Being Carer Positive is especially important to young carers, who have the right to the same opportunities as other young people. Showing you are a Carer Positive employer gives young people confidence that an employer is here to support them as individuals to help them to grow and thrive.”
