A New Project
Supporting Carers into work
As of July 1st AFFC has embarked on a new project that will offer support to unpaid carers over the age of 50 who wish to take advantage of any opportunities available to them within the employment marketplace. This opportunity is also available to former carers who may feel this is the right time to revisit this pathway.
This project will support unpaid carers and former carers into work, education or training and address the barriers to employment and where necessary provide signposting which will allow participants to gain valuable employability skills.
By providing 1:1 personalised support it will build action plans and needs assessments custom made for each individual and focus on supporting specific goals. It will also support the emotional and practical needs that can also be a major barrier to employment.
