Thinking Ahead is a free online resource that aims to prepare people for the potential costs involved in caring for a family member or loved one, and highlights key issues for carers in work. It explains what sources of support are available and steps that can be taken to reduce the financial impact of caring. It has been developed through the Money Advice Service’s What Works Fund. Unum are supporting Carers UK to disseminate and publicise the tool.
