Juggling work or studying with caring responsibilities can be challenging, tiring and stressful. Without the right support, many carers find it difficult to sustain their careers or studies.
You may not want to tell your employer or school/college/university about your caring responsibilities, but if you do, they may be flexible to your needs and offer you support.
Your employer or school/college/university should have a policy for supporting carers. You might find this information in a handbook or intranet, or you could ask your:
- line manager
- HR/personnel department
- union or staff representative
- faculty staff, teachers or lecturers
