May sees the United Nations’ International Day of Families: an international celebration of caregivers. This year the focus is on assisting parents in their educational and caregiving roles, through good work/life balance.
At Liferaft our mission is to support all caregivers all year round by removing the burden of repetitive form-filling.
In recognition of this, we have improved our own portal to make it even easier to use. Now you don’t need to enter payment details to access your free trial and we’ve added an easy registration button. Give it a go now:
Celebrating Awesome Parents
Continuing on the theme of celebrating caregivers, we are proud to announce that Liferaft is sponsoring the Bloody Awesome Parents Awards taking place in Birmingham on Thursday 18th May. We will be giving away a year’s subscription to one lucky winner on the night, so don’t forget to come and say hello.
