Around one in eight workers in the UK are carers, that equates to around 52,000 in Hertfordshire.

Carers have specific rights outlined in legislation which can support them to manage their dual role. These include the right to request flexible working and leave entitlement.  Lots of employers are already proactive in ensuring their employees are aware of their rights but some aren't.  If you would like to find out more about supporting and identifying carers where you work then please get in touch. You might be interested in displaying a poster on your staff noticeboard or request a member of Carers in Hertfordshire staff to come to discuss the ways in which we can help. If you would like any leaflets, posters or support please contact us by calling 01992 58 69 69 or emailing
