News: Employers For Carers

Posted on 16th December 2015

This is a new FREE  service – funded by West Sussex County Council – for all small and medium sized businesses in West Sussex.

Employers for Carers provides practical help through a free membership scheme for SME employers across the county and helps local employers support and retain staff who are looking after older, disabled or seriously ill family members or friends.

The purpose of supporting the scheme is to:

  • raise the profile of working carers across the county
  • help local employers identify and support carers in their workforce
  • signpost carers to sources of both workplace and external support.

Our website www.employersforcarers.org allows you to register online (using a unique membership code).  Once you have registered online, you gain the following benefits:

  • Access to website resources including employer, manager and employee resources
  • Latest information and guidance around work, caring and ageing
  • Option to join Carers UK (free online membership) for all staff
  • Invitation to a networking event

Testimonials

"The BHBPA is an energetic and vocal organisation that connects and empowers and informs the local business community acting as an effective conduit to local authority and other organisations. We are proud to be part of that community and the association."

Nick Broom, Managing Director
(PVL UK Ltd)

"I am delighted to have a long-standing relationship with the BHBPA. Since its foundation the Association has gone from strength to strength and there is no doubt that it has brought huge benefits to its members and the business community as a whole through the partnerships it has formed with the local authorities, Sussex Police and local organisations. It is paramount that Burgess Hill businesses have an effective collective voice."

The Hon Nicholas Soames MP

"“Sutton Winson have been members of the BHBPA for around 7 years. We have found it a great way to keep in touch with Burgess Hill businesses and to meet with likeminded people. It’s not just another “networking” group, as it tackles the real issues and gets things done”"

Bruce Millington, Manager
(Sutton Winson Ltd)

"The BHBPA is the most effective and dynamic business organisation I have ever worked with in over 30 years in Local Government. It has a very active and large membership whose points of view are taken seriously by all government structures. Peter Liddell does an excellent job in providing unique and enjoyable networking opportunities where members interact and discuss points of mutual interest. It provides a forum for businesses to discuss common issues, to share experiences and to play a powerful and meaningful role in the Burgess Hill community. The BHBPA provides important and credible support for all its members and ensures that their best interests are represented where necessary. "
