If you’re self-employed you will have more control over your working life than someone who is employed. But you won’t have the same rights and protection.
If you're self-employed you and your family may depend on the income from your business, too. This can add extra pressure on being a carer.
If you plan to carry on working, there’s a lot of support and help available. You may like to read our booklet, Hello, and how are you?| It’s written for carers, by carers and includes information about self-employment. We have more information on self-employment and cancer|; although it's written for people with cancer, you may face some of the same problems described.
At Macmillan, we talk to carers every day. You can contact our cancer support specialists free|. They are here to listen and provide the information you need.
