Two leading charities are coming together and combining expertise in a new project aimed at supporting female carers into work.
Carers Wales have joined forces with gender equality charity Chwarae Teg who, from later this month, will roll out an initial six training sessions directly targeting some of those women in most need of support.
The bespoke virtual workshops have been devised by part of Chwarae Teg’s commercial offering – FairPlay Employer Solutions – which reinvests profits back into the charity’s work to end gender inequality.
Designed to specifically help female carers improve confidence to re-enter the workplace, the webinars look at subjects such as writing CVs and preparing for interviews after caring.
The sessions are available to women who may be considering working alongside an existing caring role or wanting to enter employment as their caring responsibilities have perhaps changed or ended.
