About the Employment, Education and Family Carers Interest Group

The Employment, Education and Family Carers Interest Group will bring together researchers, academics, policymakers and practitioners who have a shared interest in the impacts of unpaid care provision on education and employment of family carers including young carers and other carers with diverse experiences and needs. We will pay particular attention to national and/or local policies and strategies to provide more equitable support to carers to remain in or return to work and education, and financial protection for carers on low incomes or not in paid work.

The group will organize webinars to facilitate engagement with multinational experts and share key research findings in addition to best practices from different countries.
