ABSTRACT
The article reports on the response of CLIC Sargent, a leading children's cancer charity in Great Britain, to the Work and Families Act which gave carers the right to request flexible working. Peter Atfield, human resources director at CLIC Sargent, a leading children's cancer charity, states that everybody during their working life will end up being a carer at some point. CLIC Sargent matches an employee's annual leave entitlement with paid planned carers' leave, permitting time off for crucial commitments such as hospital appointments.
