Our charities

Working Families

For many years Capability Jane has supported the Working Families charity, and by donating every month, we are an official Working Families Changemaker.

We choose to support Working Families because their goals and mission are aligned with the ethos of Capability Jane and our work in recruiting for senior flexible roles..

Working Families Mission & Vision

To achieve a society in which everyone can fully meet their work and caring responsibilities. This society allows real choice in balancing the interdependent demands of family, work and community at different life stages and so enables everyone to realise their full potential.

To achieve this they:

  1. Support and advocate for working carers and families, especially those who are disadvantaged.
  2. Promote workplace cultures which support work-life balance and flexible working for all working people.
  3. Work collaboratively with employers, policy makers, opinion formers and working people as a pragmatic force for change.

What Working Families do

Working Families is the UK’s work-life balance organisation.  Helping working parents and carers—and their employers—find a better balance between responsibilities at home and in the workplace.

They provide free legal advice to parents and carers on their rights at work. They give employers the tools they need to support their employees while creating a flexible, high-performing workforce. And they advocate on behalf of the UK’s 13 million working parents, influencing policy through campaigns informed by ground-breaking research.
