Supporting Working Carers in Covid-19 (Carers UK 2020)

The latest report from Carers UK on supporting working carers during the Covid-19 pandemic. 

'With an additional 2.8 million workers1 having taken on caring responsibilities in a matter of weeks since the outbreak of COVID-19, supporting carers in the workplace has never been so urgent. This year swathes of people – most in their 40s and 50s and in employment – have started caring unpaid for family members and friends who would otherwise manage on their own, but are now vulnerable to COVID-19.'
