About Supporting Parents & Carers

Usdaw Cares about Carers

Each year we hold a campaign day called Supporting Parents and Carers Spotlight Day. Hundreds of reps and activists get involved by running campaigns at their workplaces.

This year we used the day to reach out to members who are juggling their jobs with looking after someone to let them know that:

  • The Union understands the pressures they are under.
  • We can help with problems like hours of work or needing time off to care.
  • We can signpost members to appropriate support organisations where caring is causing problems what go beyond the workplace.
  • And to raise awareness of carers' rights at work.

How this helps you

Members who feel under pressure or need advice can contact us for support. The Union understands the pressures carers are under.

  • We can help with problems like hours of work or needing time off to care.

All members who have at least 26 weeks service can ask their employer for a change in their working hours.
