How to become Carer Positive

If you're a carer, you can suggest to your employer that they consider becoming Carer Positive. The Carer Positive process is aimed to be clear and straightforward, based on a simple self-assessment process.

There is no cost associated with participating.

Employers submit an application form describing how they meet criteria in 5 key areas. Where possible, this should be accompanied by evidence of their policies and activities.

There are 3 levels:

  • engaged
  • established
  • exemplary

If they wish, employers can progress from one stage to the next, building from an initial level of commitment to creating a culture of support for carers within the organisation.

Organisations are encouraged to identify and develop their own actions as appropriate to their size and structure.

The intention is that all organisations, across all sectors, whether small or large, can achieve each level.
