About us

Who we are

At Working Families, we believe that no parent or carer should be forced to choose between thriving at home and thriving at work. That's why we’re on a mission to remove the barriers that people with caring responsibilities face in the workplace so that parents and carers can successfully blend life and work. We do this by giving free legal advice to parents and carers on their rights at work, helping employers create flexible workplaces, and influencing government policy. 

We’ve been around for over 40 years, and in that time have helped to drive forward significant change, most recently legislation on Flexible Working and Neonatal Care. In the past year alone over 1,000,000 parents and carers have accessed our advice pages and helpline and we have supported 130 employer members to create flexible and family-friendly workplaces. 2024 is shaping up to be another big year, what with being instrumental in setting up the All-Party-Parliamentary Group on Flexible Working, and exciting projects with employers under way.

We’re a small but ever-expanding team of 25 people that work remotely but meet up once a month. As advocates of flexible and family-friendly working, we walk the talk, with a fully flexible working model and supportive policies including 10 days of emergency leave for parents and carers, and equalised new parent leave of 6 weeks full pay and 6 weeks half pay.

When you work with us, you can expect to work in a role that has been designed to fit the number of hours you work. You can expect to be fully supported and listened to. You can expect a culture that embraces everyone being themselves and bringing their whole selves to work. And you can expect to work in an organisation that is continually striving to the best it can be, for its people and for the UK’s working parents and carers.
