Going Out with a Bang
2021 has been another challenging year for employers in Scotland so we are delighted to hand out two more awards before we close our office for the winter holidays.
The first goes to Carers of East Lothian who now meet the criteria to be recognised as a Carer Positive Established employer. Support for carers within their organisation (and in the wider community) is well embedded via health and wellbeing support, as well as various communication channels. CoEL have also done a fantastic amount of work in developing support for working carers and their plans for wider awareness raising which really represents the Exemplary award level they have reached.
In addition, we are pleased to recognise TSB as a Carer Positive member and recipient of a Established level award. TSB recently became part of Carers UK’s Carer Confident programme and due to the links between that program and our own, they are automatically able to be recognised as Carer Positive for their Scottish operations.
Well done to both organisations, we are sure that your workplace support for carers will go from strength to strength.
The Carer Positive office will be closed at the end of tomorrow (Tuesday 21st December) and will reopen on Wednesday 5th January. We wish you all a happy and safe winter break.
