We know these are challenging and uncertain times, and the parents and carers amongst us may be feeling additional pressure to ‘home educate’ our children and dependents.
Please know that there are lots of support networks, websites and ideas, and we are here to support you if you feel you need some help to get your head around it all!
Obviously, this list of tips and resources is not exhaustive, just a small guide to set you on your way if you’re struggling to get going.
Remember, as a working parent or carer, you are doing an amazing job for us at RCHT at this time, and we so appreciate your experience and expertise. There is a lot of pressure from differing levels, so please also remember, when you aren’t at work helping us, to take some down time and enjoy the time with your family.
A carer helps to look after another person who is not able to manage alone. You could be supporting a partner, parent, child, relative, friend or neighbour who is affected by age, disability, physical or mental health problems or substance misuse.
Are you a working Carer? Carers UK give expert advice, information and support. We campaign and innovate to find better ways to reach and support carers.
