Unveil the often unseen world of unpaid care work, where 59% of caregivers are women, according to Census 2021. This event sheds light on the disproportionate burden shouldered by women in providing extensive hours of unpaid care, often at the expense of potential paid work opportunities. (Petrillo and Bennett, 2022). This relaxed, insightful session that recognises the remarkable contributions of unpaid caregivers, including the remarkable story of a woman who has dedicated over 30 years to caregiving. Laura Holden from Cheshire and Warrington Carers will be present to offer valuable information and guidance, covering the definition of a caregiver, available support, and existing networks.
