Are you a working carer? Looking after dependents and working can be a real challenge.

Knowing your rights can help you combine paid work and caring for your child. And charity Working Families has set up ‘Waving not drowning’ – a dedicated network and advice service for parents of disabled children who work or wish to work.

The charity helps working parents and carers and their employers find a better balance between responsibilities at home and work.

Check out the Working Families film to find out more about:

  • parental leave
  • time off for dependants
  • flexible working

Or you can download factsheets on the above topics.

There’s also a helpline for parents & carers: 0300 012 0312
