Working Care Out

If you have been caring for someone, you may have been away from paid work and education for a long time. Maybe you'd like to return to paid work or study but you are not sure where to start.

Family Carers Ireland's free Working Care Out project, supported by the Dormant Accounts Fund, has been designed to support family carers like you. We offer a range of supports to current and former carers to enhance wellbeing and we work with you to address your questions and worries about returning to work or study.
