East Lothian Council's Award in the Press

Jul 2, 2021

We recently presented an Engaged Carer Positive Award to East Lothian Council. This week’s article in the East Kilbride Courier highlighted this achievement but also explained exactly what it means.

Carer Positive Engaged status reflects that East Lothian Council has a good understanding of the term ‘carer’, recognises carers within HR policies and procedures, enables carers in its workforce to access practical workplace support and information about external support and services, communicates with carers and helps carers engage with other carers.
