Britain Works is a programme of work which aims to inform conversations between both charities and UK employers to identify the solutions that will improve the working lives of the UK’s low and middle-income parents.
A survey by Child Poverty Action Group (CPAG) and Working Families has found that low and middle-income parents want to work, want permanent jobs with a sense of purpose and put a premium on job security – but inadequate pay, a lack of affordable childcare and poor opportunities for progression are holding them back.
A Britain Works report on the increasing challenges of work for low-income families has also published today. The report identifies how the world of work is changing and how this is affecting moves into work, progression in work, work-life balance and the rewards from work.
