The number of same-sex couple families in the UK has risen over 50% in the last five years. LGBTQ parents are more likely to adopt Harder to Place children, and children raised in single-sex households perform incredibly well in school!
As business allies and leaders, here’s what we can do to support LGBTQ parents!
- Offer equal paid leave time to expecting mothers, fathers and adoptive parents.
- Provide employer-subsidised childcare to working parents inclusive of LGBTQ parents.
- Connect LGBTQ parents to a support network of other parents.
- Keep the conversation going beyond Pride month!
