About Supporting Parents & Carers

Stand up for carers

Every year Usdaw organises a campaign day to support members who are parents and carers.

This year’s Supporting Parents and Carers campaign takes place on Wed 26 June 2024.

The campaign day this year has the theme 'Stand up for carers'.

How this helps you

This year we want to use Spotlight Day to:

  • Raise awareness of the rights carers have at work.
  • Highlight the impact on carers’ incomes of the cost of living crisis and the additional costs of caring.
  • Find out more about the problems members have juggling paid work with their unpaid care commitments.
  • Campaign for improvements to the new right to carer's leave, including for it to be paid.
