Our aim is to continue our journey to become a Disability Confident Leader. To find out more please visit disabilityconfident.campaign.gov.uk

Our pledge to colleagues with caring responsibilities

Employers for Carers logoAs part of our commitment to the national Harry’s Pledge campaign, we’ve also joined Employers for Carers (EfC) to better support those colleagues who provide unpaid care for a loved one.

Working with EfC, we promise to do all we can to support colleagues with caring responsibilities by making our policies carer-friendly. We’ll ensure colleagues are able to work flexibly to help fit work around their caring responsibilities.

We’ll also provide platforms and support for carers to share their stories and tell us what they need from us as an employer.

We’ll make the offices and community spaces we offer as accessible as possible and work with partners to further professionalise care through clear qualifications/career paths and promote it as a valued career choice.
