Movement to Work is delighted to announce that it is co-hosting an online ‘lunch and learn’ event Wednesday 12th June during this year’s Carers Week. Please see below for more details.

To spotlight Carers Week this June, join us to hear from our charity partner Carers Trust on who this hidden group of young people are, and how employers can support them in the workplace.

This session will help you to:

  • Gain information on who unpaid young adult carers are.
  • What barriers they face into employment
  • Why they are a fantastic untapped talent for the workplace.
  • Understanding some ways you can support this group in your workplace.

 The 45-minute event will be delivered online via Zoom, and we will be joined by young adult carers, bringing their lived experience to the session.
