Home About us Families and Work Group

Families and Work Group

In anticipation of the government’s promised Employment Bill, Working Families has reconvened the Families and Work Group, an informal coalition of charities, unions, think tanks and campaign groups with a collective interest in working collaboratively to secure policy changes that reduce the barriers parents and carers face when accessing and progressing in work, and balancing caring responsibilities. 

The Group will be a focal point for policy development, cocreated research, and coordinated campaigns to amplify the voices of working parents and carers in policy and research circles.   

For any enquiries about the group please contact Kyle Green, Parliamentary and Stakeholder Engagement Manager, via: kyle.green@workingfamilies.org.uk
