Analysis of responses to the call for evidence on returning to work after time out for caring
A Government Equalities Office publication analyses the responses to its consultation on the experiences of people who want to return to work after taking time out to care for children or family. Respondents, both returners and potential returners, identified both structural and personal barriers to returning to the workplace, with the main structural issues being lack of flexible work opportunities and lack of suitable and affordable care, and the main internal barriers identified as lack of relevant and up-to-date skills and low self-esteem and confidence.Link to Analysis of responses
