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.
