Both young and adult carers can be affected by the impact of juggling their caring role with employment and/or education.  The practical and emotional implications of a caring role can be both stressful and demanding, making work and study challenging, particularly in times of crisis. 

The reality for many carers is that they disengage from education or leave employment to focus on their caring responsibilities. 


The Carers Federation Quality Standard in Carer Support has been developed by carers to provide accreditation and training for employers and F.E providers to improve the experiences of carers across
organisations. 


If you are an education provider (university or college) you can now complete the standard online with the support from our experienced team. If you want any further information;
