What are the impacts of unpaid care provision on the education and employment of family carers? How does this affect young carers and other carers with diverse experiences and needs?

The GOLTC Employment, Education and Family Carers interest group will seek to share research exploring these impacts and experiences of 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 those on low incomes or not in paid work.
