Most families in the UK now need to be full-time working families and yet juggling a work life balance and appropriate childcare is very difficult.
As parents, we need better access to quality and affordable childcare so that we can go to work, knowing that our little ones are taken good care of, during the hours that we need.
Up until now, there has been little support from Employers with regards to our childcare requirements.
Infant Index has been set up in response and we want to work with UK employers to support 'parents' working in their organisations.
We aim to educate businesses on topics such as:
Flexible working policy
Remote working opportunities
Shifts that work around school hours
Family friendly work culture
Maternity/Paternity leave packages over and above the statutory guidelines.
We will also be promoting the benefits of employers having onsite workplace nurseries or subsidised childcare facilities for their employees.
The benefit to businesses Include a happier more engaged work force which will result in higher retention and lower absenteeism.
Up until now want this project has been self funded but we are now looking to grow this campaign and start reaching out to some larger organisations.
If you have ever experienced or are still experiencing difficulties balancing your family/work life and would like to support us in making a change, please donate to this cause and support our work.
In return, if you would like support from us in negotiating better terms with your own employer, please send us details and we will set some wheels in motion.
