Campaign for Carers #1
Campaign for Carers #2
Carers FIRST is proud to announce that it is backing a campaign to introduce Carers Leave led by Mending the Gap.
Mending the Gap is campaigning for equality for working Carers and for them to be allowed paid leave to help in cases of emergency and to avoid Carers havng to use holiday entitlement or take unpaid leave.
There is a policy in the NHS and also authorities like Kent County Council and Mending the Gap are campaiging for voluntary sector and private organisations to follow suit.
