Carers@Work is a Facebook group that builds on the shared aims of VOCAL (Voice of Carers Across Lothian) and Marie Curie to support and resource carers who are juggling work and caring responsibilities.

Service Description

VOCAL works with employers to encourage the creation of carer friendly workplaces and practice, and supports carers through individual support, training and counselling. Marie Curie has undertaken research to identify the particular needs of carers in palliative care situations, and seeks to improve their experiences through work with employers.

The aim and objectives of the group is to:

  • encourage ongoing peer support, build resilience and information sharing amongst carers who are working, in a safe environment
  • identify emerging themes and issues for use in discussion with employers
  • inform legislative and employer policy and practice through active engagement with the group on key issues
  • identify carers who may be willing to act as resources for employers
