We give legal advice to parents and carers on their rights at work, for free, to anyone who needs it

We are thrilled to be taking part in the Big Give Christmas Challenge, running until Tuesday 7 December. That means that if you can donate even a few pounds today your donation will be immediately doubled!

Please help us support more parents and carers who need us today.

If you can’t donate right now, please help by spreading the word about Working Families. Please help us to help others and share any information you have found useful. You never know who might need it.
