Working Families is the UK’s work-life balance charity. Our mission is to remove the barriers that people with caring responsibilities face in the workplace.
We provide free legal advice to parents and carers on their rights at work. We give employers the tools they need to support their employees while creating a flexible, high-performing workforce. And we advocate on behalf of the UK’s 13 million working parents, influencing policy through campaigns informed by ground-breaking research.
As of 2020, Family Friendly Working Scotland has been move under the Working Families name and organisational structure. Our work will be unified under a single brand—Working Families—and a singular purpose: to change the world of work for the better.
While the FFWS name will no longer exist—and while we will no longer have a physical office in Glasgow—Working Families’ commitment to building flexible and family-friendly workplaces in Scotland hasn’t changed. We will continue to support employers in Scotland through membership, training and coaching, and a host of resources for employers of all sizes, using our 40 years of experience to help you build resilient and flexible working cultures. Working parents and carers in Scotland can still use our award-winning free legal advice helpline. And we will continue to conduct groundbreaking research like our Modern Families Index, offering valuable insights into how parents in Scotland and across the UK are balancing work with their caring responsibilities.
