Abstract

This report presents the findings of a qualitative research study, commissioned by the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) in April 2008, to examine and understand what employment support is needed for carers in order for them to take up and remain in work. Many carers who are not currently working would like to do so and the DWP is keen to understand the support they require to achieve this. The background to the project is the DWP’s aim to promote work as the best form of welfare for people of working age by ensuring that work is seen as the best way out of poverty, while protecting the position of those in greatest need. This summary provides an overview of the research findings and the policy implications of the study.
