16 March is Young Carers Action Day an annual event run by The Carers Trust. The theme this year is Protect Young Carers Futures.
Carers of whatever age develop incredible life skills through their caring responsibilities. Skills such as resilience, time management and empathy make them an asset to the work place.
Find out more about the help and support available to carers in the civil service at our online Carers Action Day event on 16 March.
- Hear stories about how carers manage to balance their careers and their caring commitments
- Take the opportunity to shape the future direction of the Civil Service Local Carers network in the Midlands, which is being launched at this event.
