Parents and Carers

UPDATE: There is legislation coming into effect with regard to Shared Parental Leave for babies due and children being matched on or after 5th April 2015 . The University is currently working on its policy, in the meantime please see the government website for more information. If you have specific queries please email Charlotte Woollam in HR Policy.

The University is committed to supporting staff who maintain responsibilities as a carer alongside their job. Whether these responsibilities include caring for a child or caring for another dependent, we aim to work with our employees to facilitate a good work/life balance.

All our policies to support Parents and Carers aim to be inclusive and therefore apply equally to all staff including those in same sex relationships.
