Return to Work Carers project
Carers Northumberland understands the importance of creating opportunities for carers. We can provide you with specialist support to help you maintain your current employment, find a new job or access training or education to help you move forward.
The Return to Work Carers Project provides flexible support to carers from the age of 16. We work with you one step at a time, to help you achieve your potential through:
· One to one coaching
· Identifying and addressing any barriers
· Supporting with employability skills
· Helping you understand your rights at work
This is a voluntary initiative providing specialist support for carers to help achieve your potential.
If you would like further information, or to start accessing support, please contact Lisa, your Carers into Work Advisor at Carers Northumberland on 01670 320025, or email firstname.lastname@example.org
We also have a Return to Work flyer and you can download this here.
We have online sessions tailored specifically to help carers to maintain employment or find a new job. The sessions are relaxed, welcoming and supportive covering a range of topics relating to caring and employability.
The sessions are delivered virtually via Microsoft Teams.
If you would like to find out more about our online sessions, please view our Training Package.
Perhaps you want to gain employment or just wishing to improve your abilities, skills and knowledge. Whatever your goal we can support you and all carers are welcome to join in.
