Carer’s Leave Bill


Carers UK has announced that the Carer’s Leave Bill has today passed its Second Reading in the House of Commons, as well as securing formal support from Government. This legislation, if successful in its passage through both Houses of Parliament, would see employees across Great Britain get a landmark new right to take up to one week of unpaid Carer’s Leave.

The next step for the Bill will be Committee Stage. Further details will be provided as soon as the dates are confirmed.

“Thank you – this is a fantastic result, which could not have happened without your support.”

– Tamara Sandoul, Head of Policy and Public Affairs, Carers UK.
