Bal­an­cing Care Re­spons­ib­il­it­ies & Work/Study

When caring for a family member in addition to their job or studies, carers need support and more time flexibility.

Many employers are already taking these developments into account by offering support for employees who need care. Paderborn University would like to take a first step in this direction with this information service. With the Family Service Office, Paderborn University supports employees and students who are responsible for the care of family members.

The aim of the Family Service Office is to provide information about existing regional and national support services and the most important contact points and to encourage employees and students to use these to improve the compatibility of work/study and care. With this, Paderborn University would like to make a contribution to a more family-friendly and thus also care-friendly world of study and work.
