Care Services Minister, Paul Burstow, has announced a new government and employers working group to help give carers the support they need to stay in work alongside their caring responsibilities. The group will explore how employers, statutory services and providers can work better together. It will look at how reform and innovation in the social care system, and stimulation of the market in care services, could help provide staff with the support they need. The announcement comes as employers, including BT, Sainsbury’s and PricewaterhouseCoopers, reported increasing numbers of employees struggling to juggle work with caring for older and disabled relatives.
