Each month a carers' story is shared in our working carers e-newsletter and is displayed below. You can subscribe to the newsletter here.

We aim to share real life stories and experiences from carers currently working, those unable to find work that fits in around their caring role, those looking to return to work and those who have left work in order to care.

We will also be showcasing best practice examples of carer-friendly employment in Stockport.

If you'd also like to share your story, please email [email protected]
