Working Grandparents - To be entitled to share parental leave and pay

George Osborne has announced that he will extend shared parental leave and pay to working grandparents. The new system will help support working families, as the government recognises the crucial role grandparents’ play in providing childcare.

It will allow grandparents to “share” parental leave with the newborn’s parents.  This will assist mothers and fathers to return to work earlier but still allow for familial support during the first year after birth.

The Chancellor has announced that the government will bring forward legislation to enable this change, with the aim of implementing the policy by 2018.
