This webinar is for employers and wellbeing leads to introduce our new virtual mentoring initiative to support carer’s wellbeing.


This is a virtual event is open to employers, wellbeing leads and employee carer networks.


Business in the Community (BITC) and leading healthcare provider Simplyhealth, have come together to co-create the Let’s Care Together programme.

Research shows that unpaid carers have worse wellbeing outcomes than non-carers, and are likely to be time-poor due to their caring responsibilities*. The programme aims to support carers by streamlining access to resources and providing practical support across the four pillars of wellbeing: Physical, Mental, Social and Financial. This support will include helping people with caring responsibilities to connect with friends and family, community groups and wider support, find wellbeing information and gain financial confidence.

Our volunteer mentors will work on a one-to-one basis with each carer on one or all of the following, depending on their preference: ​

  • Increasing connection to their local community, improving overall social wellbeing and reducing any feelings of isolation. ​
  • Supporting financial independence and knowledge of financial tools/support available.​
  • Access to practical support and tools for their physical wellbeing. ​
  • Being a regular listening ear and friendly face to offer support and guidance.​

About this event

In this webinar you will learn how our Let’s Care Together programme can support unpaid carers (over 18) with their wellbeing, through pairing them with an online mentor.

Join this session to learn more about how your beneficiaries, or colleagues with caring responsibilities could benefit from the programme.
