When parents of disabled children have to struggle to combine work with caring – network, video and survey UK

Network for parents/carers of disabled children and young people, who work or wish to work. It’s called Waving not drowning.

New video highlighting how parents of disabled children might be able to stay in paid work using a number of their rights. https://youtu.be/xF9j7JFXQ50

Survey of parents of disabled children for our ‘Off Balance’ report. Our findings from earlier this year showed that over half of UK parents of a disabled child are struggling to combine work with caring for their child. We want to hear from as many parents as possible to help with our campaigning work around flexibility in work and the right to ‘adjustment leave’. The survey can be completed here - http://www.surveygizmo.com/s3/3431593/Off-balance-2017
