About this booklet
You are a carer if you give any unpaid help and support to someone with cancer who could not manage without your help. You do not have to be living with the person you care for.
This booklet aims to help you cope with balancing work and caring. We have included information about:
- getting support at work
- flexible working
- your rights at work
- talking about cancer with your employer and the people you work with.
There is also advice if you are self-employed.
