Report 4: Carers, Employment and Services in their Local Context
Report No. 4 explores some of the differences in the services and support available to working carers and other carers considering combining work and care, according to where they live in Great Britain. It summarises the policy context in relation to carers as it has emerged over the past 10-15 years, and highlighting differences in social care arrangements between England, Scotland and Wales. It examines services and support for working carers in 10 localities and compares and contrasts local authority strategies and policy implementation in those areas.
