Working Families is the UK’s leading work-life balance organisation. The charity helps working parents and carers and their employers find a better balance between responsibilities at home and work.
Their Legal Helpline gives parents and carers free advice on employment rights such as maternity and paternity leave, rights to time off in an emergency, shared parental leave and parental leave, as well as helping them to negotiate the flexible hours they want. They can give basic advice on the benefits and tax credits that working parents can claim. They also give advice on maternity discrimination and pregnancy discrimination.
They offer free advice about your rights in the workplace and where to look for childcare.  They produce a free newsletter and a monthly e-bulletin..
The free Helpline offers parents and carers legal and practical advice.
