Work it out: essential questions to ask about work and cancer
We’ve created this work it out tool for working carers [PDF] so people caring for someone with cancer can find the information they need about managing work and care responsibilities. Using this tool will help carers ask the right questions of their employer and health professionals.
More than a million people in the UK are caring for someone with cancer. Read our report [PDF], conducted by Ipsos MORI, which reveals the profiles of the UK's carers, the support they receive, and the impact of caring on their lives.
A range of free information booklets for carers and e-programmes for carers can be found on be.Macmillan and Learn Zone, and further information and support can be found on the carers page.
