Programme: Balancing work and being the Carer of a Disabled Child
Course: Balancing Work and Being the Carer of an Adult
Description:

Who is this course for?
 
This workshop is suitable for all staff and partners of staff working at the LSE who are carers of an ill, elderly or disabled family member, friend or partner.
 
Overview
 
One in seven employees in any workforace is caring for someone who is ill, frail or has a disability.  Caring for adults is different from childcare as it can happen without warning and/or the need for care may be time limited or long-term.  Caring for adults may also be at a distance, and the carer may not even recognise themselves as a carer.
 
This is a 90 minute interactive workshop delivered by Liz Morris from Working Families which provides practical tools and insightful information on how to achieve a balance between being the carer of an adult and balancing work.
 
By the end of this workshop you will
 

  • Understand how to recognise and manage perceived barriers to balance and flexibility
  • Build awareness of how to remain flexible and resilient to shifting priorities
  • Access tools and techniques to integrate career, home and fulfilling personal goals
  • Understanding of your right to leave and right to request flexible working and raise awareness of LSE policy

 
After the workshop
 
There is a Carer's Network which is available.
