Employers Supporting Working Carers in Oxfordshire | Launch

Hosted by Oxford Brookes University, the launch event of EfC’s partnership with Oxfordshire County Council, Employers Supporting Working Carers, took place on May 22nd. The breakfast event was an opportunity for employers in Oxfordshire to be informed of the new free membership scheme to help businesses support employees who are caring for someone who is ill, frail or has a disability.

Speakers from Oxford Brookes and Unipart gave examples of their flexible employment practices to support carers, and there was plenty of opportunity for informal and lively networking amongst the attendees.
