    Response to the Matthew Taylor Independent Review of Employment Practices in the Modern Economy

    14 August 2017

    Carers UK's submission to the Matthew Taylor Independent Review of Employment Practices in the Modern Economy. Our suggestions included introducing a statutory right to 5-10 days paid care leave from work and a day one right to request flexible working. In addition, we suggested that carers are given greater support by their employers to allow them to juggle their caring responsibilities and to progress in the workplace.

    NHS Mandate 2017/18 and NHS Delivery Plan

    22 May 2017

    The NHS Mandate for 2017/18 has better inclusion of carers as well as keeping the same provision as 2016/17. Whilst Carers UK is please with more mainstreaming of carers’ issues in the document, we also believe that there is a missed opportunity to ensure that carers are not more firmly embedded into the requirements for a more modern NHS. When the new Government forms in June, we want the process for 20118/19 for the NHS to look at more robust and systematic ways of identifying and supporting carers.
