Returning to work after time out for caring

The Government would like to know more about the experiences of people who want to return to work, employers’ experiences of recruiting these people and other evidence on the barriers that they face and the support available to them.

In the Spring Budget 2017, the Government committed “to promoting returnships to the public and private sector, helping people back into employment after a career break.” This commitment focusses on supporting returners, who are defined as those that have taken time out of paid employment to care for children or other family members.

This call for evidence is for:

  1. Those who have returned to work after time out caring for children or family
  2. Those currently caring for children or family who would like to return to work
  3. Employers
  4. Organisations or individuals with knowledge of returners

This background also includes a form for you to complete if you are happy to participate in this call for evidence.
