Briefing on Governments' Carer's Leave Consultation - Carers UK's views and evidence

30 June 2020

The Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy is currently running a consultation which is seeking views on giving unpaid carers a new right to a week of leave.

Carers UK has welcomed Government’s intention and pledge to introduce Carer’s Leave for employees in paid employment, as a vital step in helping both business and families providing care to disabled, older and ill relatives and friends to continue working.

This briefing includes Carers UK's view on the consultation, and provides strong evidence for why the introduction of carer's leave would be positive for carers.
