Working for Carers is a three-year employability programme that supports carers into employment, training and volunteering, taking into account their specific needs and barriers.
This is a London wide programme promoted by the Carers Trust and 23 network partners, jointly funded by the Big Lottery Fund and the European Social Fund.
The project started in January 2017 and in one year has helped more than 200 carers across London, through one-to-one sessions, workshops and training activities to get closer to the job market.
A carer is anyone who cares, unpaid, for a friend or family member who due to illness, disability, a mental health problem or an addiction cannot cope without their support.
If you know any carer or former carer, aged 25 and over and not in paid work, please let them know about this new opportunity.
The project is delivered locally, at the Croydon Information Centre, for those carers who live in the area.
