We understand that this is an extremely challenging time for employers and working carers. You may have some carers working for you who are particularly worried about the person they care for during this uncertain time.
We also recognise that finding the right information when it’s needed can be overwhelming, which is why the Public Health team at Lincolnshire County Council have created a ‘Guidance for Carers’ document, providing advice and support during the COVID-19 outbreak. The document provides information, links and advice to support carers in their caring role. (Please note, this document was last updated on the 22/04/2020, and now includes additional information regarding sources of support both local and national, information on what to do if you are a new carer, advice for Young Carers and advice for those who may employ a personal assistant by direct payment).
Given this is a fast-moving environment, a fortnightly update for Carers providing information and answers to some of the most Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) regarding Coronavirus (COVID-19) has also been produced.
Please check back here every fortnight (starting from 24/04/2020) to ensure you have the most up-to-date information.
Please note, both of these documents are Employer Neutral and can be used to share amongst your networks.
