Join Our Upcoming Highland Employers Event

Mar 3, 2023

Employers in the Highland area are invited to join us on Tuesday 21st March, at 2pm for a Carer Positive information and workshop session to discuss and share experiences on how employers can support staff with caring responsibilities.

Attendees will include existing Carer Positive awarded employers, who will be able to share their insights into creating a supportive working environment for carers. We would also like as many other local employers as possible to attend, to learn more about the challenges faced by working carers, and to discuss any issues they may have with developing support in their own organisations.  

Nationally, we are seeing wider recognition of the need to strengthen support employees who have caring responsibilities. We will share information on forthcoming new statutory support for carers, as the current Carers Leave Bill makes its passage through parliament, and what this will mean for employers. Additionally, with Carers Week in early June, the session will provide a great opportunity to talk through some ideas and activities to help raise awareness.

If you would like to attend, please click here and register your place on the Eventbrite page. We will then send out a meeting link prior to the event.
