Balancing work and caring can be demanding. If you're finding it difficult to juggle work and support your loved one, you're not alone. You have rights at work and there are laws in place to support you.
You can contact the Work Support Service using the Macmillan Support Line for free on 0808 808 00 00.
Our work advisers are available Monday to Friday, 8am to 6pm.
There are a range of issues that we know affect people caring for someone with cancer who are working:
- Your rights at work
- Talking about your caring responsibilities at work
- Making decisions about work
You can find out more about these topics from our Working while caring for someone with cancer booklet.
We also have more information on:
- Practical issues of being a carer including planning, getting support and finance and benefits for carers.
- Emotional support when you are a carer including looking after yourself and the effect of being a carer on relationships.
