Who we are

I am sure that you’ll agree with me when I say that your people are your biggest asset and that if you look after them, they will look after your customers and your business.
Ian Peters, Chair, Employers for Carers

Employers for Carers (EfC) has evolved from a pioneering group of employers committed to working carers and is backed-up by the specialist knowledge of Carers UK. Our key purpose is to ensure that employers have the support to retain and manage employees with caring responsibilities.

Launched in 2009 as an employers’ membership forum, EfC now has over 120 member organisations across the public, private and voluntary sectors. The total number of employees covered by member organisations is now above the 1.25 million mark. The number of working carers represented is likely to be in the region of 140,000. These carers can directly access support from both EfC and Carers UK.
