Employers for Carers (EfC) launched in 2009 as an employers’ membership forum.

EfC now has over 120 member organisations across the public, private and voluntary sectors. Our key purpose is to ensure that employers have the support to retain and manage employees with caring responsibilities. In June 2018, the Wales Hub of Employers for Carers was formed in order to ensure that there was a focus on supporting Welsh owned and based employers with carers in their workforces.

A You Gov poll carried out by Carers UK at the end of 2018 demonstrated that more and more people are juggling paid care and an unpaid caring role; with 223,000 workers in Wales identifying as a carer; this equates to 1 in 7 of the workforce also having caring responsibilities. Our mission is to change employers’ practices across Wales to effectively support carers in their workforce.

Training and support provided through membership subscription is bespoke to the organisation but consists of face to face training for all staff or made specific to management.  This is in addition to EfC Digital the online platform with guides, toolkits and e-learning. The final strand of support is linking people management and diversity and inclusion professionals together across Wales twice a year, in order to share best practice on what they are doing to support carers in their workforces.
