Carers Trust has created a guide for young adult carers in England who are looking for work for the first time, have been out of work for a while or are in work but looking for a new job.
The guide gives young adult carers advice on:
  • Your job search
  • Choosing the right job
  • The application process
  • Interview tips
  • Managing work
  • Balancing work and caring
  • Where to get support and information if you are a young adult carer

The Young Adult Carers employment handbook was written following a consultation which involved Carers Trust, two young adult carers which Carers Bucks has supported, 20 other young adult carers from across The Carers Trust Network, their support workers and four employers.
