Delivered in partnership with Carers NI, this initiative aims to give staff and managers the confidence to have open and honest conversations, as well as providing clarity around flexibility and support available.

The Carer Passport allows an employee to document information about their caring responsibilities and how these might impact on their working life. This information is often sensitive and highly personal in nature. The Passport is intended to remove or lessen any barriers or discomfort in sharing this with a Line Manager or HR representative.

It offers a simple structure to help focus and record conversations between an employee and their manager and aims to find solutions.
