Working for Carers

Working for Carers was a London-wide project, led by Carers Trust, that supported unpaid carers, aged 25 or over, to move closer to employment. 

This project is no longer taking referrals.

The Carers Trust Working for Carers page here has Carers Stories, information and learning from the project. 

There is information on Employment and Training services in Westminster and Kensington and Chelsea for Carers looking for support that can be downloaded here
