Members Networking Event | October 2017

Members Networking Event:

Carers networks - Factors for success

Thursday 19th October

4.30pm for 5 – 7.30pm 

Our next EfC Members Networking Event will be taking place in the evening of Thursday 19th October and is kindly being hosted by KPMG at their landmark offices in Canary Wharf, London.

Building on the success of our earlier events on this theme, this year’s event will focus on sharing the learning both from dedicated carers networks and wider workplace networks, and identifying the critical factors for success.

Exploring examples of both established and emerging initiatives, we will discuss the crucial role that employers are playing in signposting carers to peer to peer, workplace and external support and what further steps or resources may be needed, including how EfC can help.

We will also share insights from a current Carers UK research project with representatives from four EfC employers and carers networks to assess and evaluate the impact of digital information and support on the health and wellbeing of working carers.

As we are keen to ensure that our EfC membership offer is as fresh and relevant as possible we will also share our plans to enhance our package of support, including making our e-learning course for line managers available as part of your membership. We will also highlight additional resources and support available from Carers UK and our forthcoming plans to pilot an employer benchmarking scheme.

The event, which will include employers from a wide range of sectors, will start at 4.30pm for 5pm with a short informal networking opportunity over tea and coffee, and will end with a further opportunity to network whilst enjoying refreshments and canapés.
