Carers UK briefing on flexible working consultation

26 November 2021

The Department for Business, Innovation and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) is currently consulting on proposals to reform flexible working regulations. The consultation is called ‘‘Making flexible working the default’.

  • We think the consultation provides an important opportunity to secure beneficial changes for unpaid carers who are juggling their caring responsibilities alongside paid work (‘working carers’).
  • This briefing provides key details about the consultation and why we think this is an important opportunity to further support working carers.
  • We also want to encourage other organisations to respond positively to the consultation and have detailed the responses we have already submitted to the consultation.
  • The deadline for responding to the consultation is 11:45pm on 1 December 2021.
