Corporate Social Responsibility
Sponsorship is the perfect way to support carers both in your organisation and in the community whilst achieving a route to market and generating positive brand awareness for your company.
5 million people in the UK are juggling caring responsibilities with work. That’s 1 in 7 of the workforce. However, the significant demands of caring mean that 600 people per day give up employment to care for an older or disabled relative.
Unpaid carers are the forgotten workforce that is saving the UK government £13.9 billion a year. Without the dedication, commitment and significant sacrifice of these carers the whole care economy would simply collapse. So we are asking you to help us Care For The Carer.
We are now working with corporations to bring tide to the workplace to help those employees who have caring roles “Bring Their Best Selves To Work”.
If you would like to learn how we can help you become a more carer-friendly organisation by sponsoring tide, please contact our Sustainability Manager Lauren Lauren Barrett - Lauren@tidecarers.org.uk
