News: Support for Carers

Posted on 22nd June 2016

Do you have employees who may be juggling work with caring for a loved one?

 

West Sussex County Council is working in partnership with Employers for Carers to help small and medium businesses like yours support and keep hold of the carers in your workforce.

The service 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.

 

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

 

Can you afford to lose the people who make your business work?

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)

"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. "

Steve Cridland, CEO
(Burgess Hill Town Council)

"“I can’t speak highly enough of the BHBPA. As a small local business we feel very much part of a community and thoroughly enjoy the annual exhibition and meetings throughout the year. Over the years we have built fantastic working relationships with many BHBPA members and every meeting and event offers us opportunities to work with more. This is networking at its best! ” "

Judi Arditi, Director
(Travail Employment Group)

"This association was started with a lot of effort from a few local businessmen and has proved to be a very powerful and useful tool for our business. The BHBPA has influence at the top level; when action is needed, the BHBPA gets it done. We are kept in touch with all that is happening on our doorstep and will often act because of what is published in the weekly emails / newsletters."
