Are you a carer?

The Charity for Civil Servants have developed a ‘Carer’s Passport and Carer’s Statement Digital Tool’ to help you to complete your ‘Civil Service Carer’s Passport’ and ‘Carer’s Statement’. 


The Carer’s Passport is designed to support current civil servants with specific caring responsibilities. The Charity’s ‘Carer’s Passport Digital Tool’ is a quick and simple self-reflective digital tool that helps you to: 


  • prepare for a conversation with your manager before completing your Civil Service Workplace Carer’s Passport and
  • provides you with a holistic range of information, support and the offer of services for outside the workplace.


The ‘Carer’s Statement’ is for use outside the workplace for communicating your needs to care professionals. 


When you complete the ‘Digital Tool’ you receive a full record of your answers to complete your Civil Service Carer’s Passport template, a ‘Carer’s Statement’ if you have requested this and a personalised ‘Action Plan’. The ‘Action Plan’ gives tailored advice and signposting to additional resources that may be helpful to you, or the person you provide care for. 


The Charity for Civil Servants may be able to help you in other ways, for example with additional costs incurred due to caring responsibilities, such as transport, fuel, equipment, respite breaks and technology. 


If you’d like to access any of the Charity’s other support services, please visit their website.
