Join us to consider the key policy issues affecting working parents and carers in the coming year.

The Government has launched a Review of Modern Employment Practices and is also publishing a new Industrial Strategy.

  • What opportunities do these present for working parents and carers?
  • What impact will wider economic and political changes have on UK families?
  • What will happen to those who are ‘just about managing’?

Attendees will be the first to hear in-depth findings from the Modern Families Index 2017, the most comprehensive survey of working parents in the UK, run by Working Families and Bright Horizons. Parents told us about how they are managing their time and money, the extent to which work supports or interrupts family life, and how they feel about their employer.

Speakers include:

  • Flick Drummond MP 
  • David Finch, Senior Economic Analyst, Resolution Foundation
  • Kate Bell, Head of Economic and Social Affairs, TUC
