The Mumsnet Family Friendly Programme

Making life easier for parents has always been at the very core of our ethos. We want to help make Britain one of the best places in Europe to raise a family – but change needs to come in the home and the workplace.

Every year, our Family Friendly Awards celebrates the companies contributing to this change by making life easier for working parents.

Read all about our current programme members and keep an eye on the list as more companies join up.

Mumsnet employment survey

For our 2016 Family Friendly Awards, we carried out a survey into flexible working in the workplace for UK households – and found that a staggering 27% of people surveyed did not even know they had the right to request flexible working.
