Explaining the news

rsz_mandy_1

Far from being apathetic, the kids seem to be quite interested in the election campaign. Daughter three came home from school proclaiming that she was the only one in her class who knew the name of the leader of the Conservative Party. Daughter one was onto Milifandom before the press and has been following Ed […]

rsz_istock_000006828492_extrasmall

The Liberal Democrats have promised a £150m package and five paid days a year of additional “care leave” for the 6.5 million carers across Britain as part of their Disability Manifesto, launched today.

Zero-hours contracts and casualised labour ‘damaging family life’

debt

The onset of recession in 2008 and its aftermath has heralded rapid growth in the use of zero-hours contracts and other “casualised” forms of employment by employers in the care, retail and hospitality sectors and have damaged family life, according to a report from Working Families. The report is based on calls to the charity’s […]


Dream dreaming

louiseblog

It’s a funny thing dreaming.  It is a fact that we all dream at some stage whilst we are asleep, but we do not all remember our dreams.   I have the most vivid, realistic, happy, fun but also sometimes extremely terrifying dreams.  I can usually recall my dreams in good detail.  In fact I […]

trussell

Record numbers of people, including growing numbers of people in work, have been accessing food banks in the last 12 months, according to the Trussell Trust charity.

Smart working ‘inhibited by technology frustrations’

rsz_technology-laptop-screaming

Over three quarters of UK employees say that collaboration technology is vital to how they work with colleagues and clients on a daily basis, but many face significant tech challenges, whether working in the office or remotely, according to a new survey. The Humanising the Enterprise study of over 1,500 knowledge workers by communications firm […]


Flexible working and diversity important factors in job search

team

Treating employees well is ranked higher by the public than how companies treat customers or whether they give to charity, with most workers saying flexible working and diversity at work being important factors in whether they take a job or not,  according to a new survey. The survey carried out on behalf of Business in […]


Employee benefits ‘should be tailored to age and gender’

wealth

Businesses are missing a trick by not tailoring work place benefits by gender and age, according to a new PwC study. The study of 2,400 UK employees shows wide variation in workplace benefits favoured by gender and age, with most wanting to see tangible benefits introduced to cut living costs and women more likely to […]


Sharp rise in young girls facing emotional problems

rsz_id-100112499

Emotional problems in girls aged 11-13 in England increased by 55% between 2009 and 2014, according to new research from University College London and the Anna Freud Centre. On average, this means that a mixed classroom of 30 children today is likely to contain one more girl with emotional difficulties than a comparable class five […]


Missing lessons

mandyblog

Getting to Friday is the main goal of each week and last week was always going to be an extra challenge, given the return to school. Daughter one woke up with stomach cramps on Thursday and Friday. The Friday ones lasted three hours, during which time she decided to read Romeo and Juliet. It was […]
