Working for Carers is a London-wide project that supports unpaid carers, aged 25 or over, to move closer to employment. The project is led by Carers Trust and delivered by its network of 24 partners across London, and is jointly funded by the Big Lottery Fund and European Social Fund.

      ·    One-to-one support and advice with a dedicated Employment Personal Advisor 

·    Group activities and training workshops
