Social Housing’s Commitment to Carers – Harry’s Pledge

About

Now more than ever, the pandemic has emphasised the vital work that carers do. 

From providing homes with specialist care and support, to offering services to people who want to live independently at home, the social housing sector is committed to caring for communities. As a sector, we also aspire to provide a supportive and caring work environment where people will be able to flourish.

Harry’s Pledge, which was launched this month, calls on social landlords to make a commitment to carers in recognition of the great work that they do. To find out more about the pledge and how your organisation can get involved please join us at our next webinar. 

Julie Doyle, CEO at Longhurst Group will be introducing the pledge and explaining why it is so important to her personally, there will also be the opportunity to discuss the 4 main components of the pledge.

Harry’s pledge:

  • Being supportive employers to people that have caring responsibilities
  • Making offices and community spaces as accessible as possible
  • Building more fully-accessible homes
  • Further professionalising and promoting care as a career, and lobbying for changes in pay and rewards for carers.
