As the working population ages and our loved ones are living longer, supporting carers who work is becoming increasingly important.  More and more of us will be juggling caring responsibilities at home alongside work.  Employers of all sizes will want to do more for carers in their workforce and Carers Wales wants to know your thoughts on how your employers could make your lives better by adopting certain working practices.  We would like your views if

  • you are a working carer
  • you have been a working carer
  • you think you may be a working carer in the future
  • you have views you would like to share

We will use the findings for a report which will be shared across Wales to inform employers and the Welsh Government about how working carers can be supported.

* 1. How would you describe yourself?

* 2. Have you discussed your caring role with your line manager?

* 3. If you have not discussed your caring role with your manager, why was this?

* 4. If you have been a working carer, are you able to give an example of something that your employer did or did not do to make you feel supported in the workplace

* 5. What is/are/would be your main concern(s) as a working carer?

* 6. Please select your top five things your employer could do to support you in your caring role

* 7. What is the approximate size of the organisation in which you work

* 8. Which best describes the sector in which you work?

* 9. If you would be happy to tell us more about your experiences as a working carer, please provide us with your name,  e-mail and contact number

Thank you for helping us make life better for working carers
