Did you know that one in nine working people are also caring for a family member or friend? Many working carers may not be aware that support and advice is available to help them. You can help by getting involved with Carers Rights Day at work.

There are loads of different ways to get involved, and you will know what would work best for your workplace. Here are some ideas!
