Carers in Employment Pilot Project
Young Adult Carer Questionnaire

The Carers in Employment Pilot Project, funded by the Department of Health, Department for Work and Pensions, and Government Equalities Office until May 2017, was introduced to build on existing work and to test out ways of reaching more carers who are struggling to juggle their employment and caring responsibilities, and to support their employers.
