The Work and Pensions Committee has called for evidence from carers and employers about the realities of juggling caring duties with paid employment. Currently, over three million unpaid carers in the UK are in paid employment. The Committee wants to hear from carers and their employers about their experiences in trying to balance caring duties with paid employment, and the kinds of practical help that can be provided to get, and keep, people in the paid work they want, while crucially ensuring their friends, relatives, and loved ones can continue to receive the best possible care. The deadline for submissions is Friday 22 December 2017.
