2019 Modern Families Index – Full Report

The Modern Families Index is the most comprehensive study of how working parents manage the balance between work and family life in the UK.

Now in its seventh year, it has been published annually by Working Families and Bright Horizons Family Solutions
since 2012

This year’s Modern Families Index offers a unique insight into the boundary where family and work meet. It shows how parents are configuring their working time to find the best fit for themselves: striking the sometimes-elusive balance between work and time with family, ensuring they have enough money to thrive, and developing a fulfilling work-life.

We surveyed 2,750 working parents, equally distributed between the regions and nations of the UK.

An overview of key findings is also available in our summary report.
