Working with carers Carers and work Supporting Working Carers Our Supporting Working Carers project focuses on supporting Carers who are in paid employment. We are working with many employers in order to encourage them to maintain Carers in employment and support Carers among their workforce. This is a pilot project funded by the Dept of Health, Government Equalities Office & the Dept for Work & Pensions. We are also working in collaboration with Northamptonshire County Council. Please contact us for further information or if you are an employer wanting more information. Skill for Care produce a useful leaflet 'Carers Matter, supporting employers, organisations and staff to better support Carers – Resources and guidance' which can be downloaded.
