Working Carers

Working Carers

At Signpost, we aim to support working carers and employers as we believe that carers have the right to a fulfilling life outside their caring role and should be supported to stay in work where possible. 

Carers UK describe a working carer as:
An employee with caring responsibilities that has an impact on their working lives. These employees are responsible for the care and support of relatives or friends who are older, disabled or seriously ill who are unable to care for themselves.

Dear Friend and Supporter of Signpost

Like many organisations, we are experiencing increased demand for our services alongside reduced funding and donations. To enable our team to work as effectively and efficiently as possible, we have taken the difficult decision to close our phone lines from 1pm, Monday – Friday.

If you do call us in the afternoon, please do leave a message with your name, number and a summary of your enquiry. Our colleagues will be checking voicemails throughout the afternoon and will call you back as soon as possible. This will be within 2 working days. Alternatively, please email

We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause, and thank you in advance for your understanding.
