Benefits of becoming a Caring Corporate
In Blackpool, thousands of people juggle a significant caring role alongside their working life.
The chances are that most working carers just ‘get on with it’. The challenge comes when a caring role becomes excessive or overwhelming. This is the time when a valuable member of your team may take sick leave or even leave your company.
Working with Blackpool Carers will help you to identify carers, support them to access appropriate support at the right time and improve staff retention, recruitment and wellbeing.
Caring can have a lasting and powerful impact on so many aspects of life. It is both rewarding and demanding, and support from employers who work with Blackpool Carers means that carers can continue to be valued and committed employees whilst also continuing to care.
Continuing to work, is vital to many carers. It gives them a sense of routine and identity, increasing their self esteem and reducing isolation.
Strong and lasting relationships are important to us and we are committed to providing your organisation with a bespoke partnership, specific to your company’s aims and objectives.
Working with us will allow your organisation to benefit from a unique charitable relationship which will:
- raise your profile
- engage, retain and develop your workforce
- form a crucial part of your corporate social responsibility strategy.
Barbara Cummings, Hospital Director at Spire Fylde Coast Hospital commented:
“Working with Blackpool Carers Centre continues to be a pleasure as well as giving focus to the hospital’s fundraising events. Our team are pleased to support a local charity that provides such valuable services and which also provides us with many community networking opportunities in terms of events and social media reach.”

Local networking group Ronja The Business Network hold their weekly breakfast meetings at Beaverbrooks House and the benefits of partnership working have far exceeded expectations.
Ronja had this to say:
“Since we moved our Networking Group to Blackpool Carers in June 2018 it has become very clear that it was the right decision. The positivity that comes from the centre and all the staff that work there gives all our businesses a great boost every week. The members have loved getting involved with fundraising events to help have a positive effect on our community. Not only is it rewarding to know we are contributing to the support of this great charity but it gives our members exposure too, which helps them build integrity as a business. We feel that Ronja The Business Network and Blackpool Carers has been a match made in heaven as we are both helping and supporting our local area.”
