You may have clocked that Mumsnet has launched a Mumsnet Family Friendly campaign The aim is to make Britain the most family friendly country in Europe (nothing too ambitious then grin) which we hope to achieve by highlighting the best family friendly practices and organisations as well as identifying what could make them better. Obviously we'll need lots of help and input from the folks who know most about all this - ie you. The next stage of our campaign is this survey which asks how you rate both you and/or your partner's workplaces (where applicable) as well as the country as a whole for being family friendly.

Please take a few minutes to complete this short survey. It's open to all UK Mumsnetters and everyone who takes part and adds their details at the end will be entered into a prize draw to win a fab £200 Sanctuary voucher, which can either be used at one of their spas or on their lovely home spa products.
Thanks for your time and good luck with the prize draw.

Since when is Canada not part of North America? hmm

Done and would be delighted to talk to the media about frankly how crap we are in this country. It doesn't take a lot of imagination to make companies more family friendly - but it does take cooperation and loyalty on both sides - something I feel we are sadly lacking in the UK.

Done - I feel that individual staff are more important than facilities.

Could Mumsnet perhaps join this campaign up with campaigns to make the UK more disability-friendly, as many changes could be improvements for both?

Eg putting lifts in at rail stations, providing customer toilets in shops, quick provision of drinks in restaurants, etc.

This is MUMSnet, right? How can you not have on one of your surveys the option for a SAHM to put that she is a SAHM, rather than having to check the 'don't work' box. I DO work, just don't get flipping paid for it. Made me so cross I haven't finished survey, £200 voucher or not.

First time i read the thread title I read it as
"win £200 sanitary voucher"blush.

And then i thought "the winner will be able to buy quite a few mooncups with that voucher" grin

Hi hairygodmother and gaelicsheep - We're so sorry we've caused offence this was absolutely not our intention. We are fully aware that SAHM (and SAHD) do a lot of (unpaid) work and try really hard to make sure this is reflected in survey questions etc. The question (Q3) asks if you are in employment because the next few questions relate primarily to those who are in paid employment as they are about the policies etc of the employer. We should, however, on reflection have said are you in paid employment to make it clearer. Likewise in Q4 where we say Don't/doesn't work - we have now added doesn't work in paid employment for clarity.

So sorry for the confusion and upset, I think as so much of the emphasis at the beginning of the survey is on company policies we slipped up, but please do complete the rest of the survey - there's lots of questions for folks not in paid employment.

Thanks again for raising this - we do try hard but we don't always get it right.

fruitshootsandheaves Tue 15-Feb-11 12:22:56

I do apologise as my brief description at the end turned into a bit of a rant!

Memoo Tue 15-Feb-11 16:27:38

Done. I really really really would like to win the vouchers to stay in the spa! Because I'm in need of some time away from dh and the kids and checking myself back into the looney bin seems a bit extreme.

NellieTheEllie Wed 16-Feb-11 12:41:51

Carrie - i've completed the survey, but have put a different email address to the one that i'm registered to Mumsnet with - will that matter? Can i change it?
