We would like to hear your concerns

First – ‘Work Life Balance’ or ‘Easy Work and Family Initiatives’ as they are described ‘down under’.
Department of Consumer and Employment Protection, Western Australia
 
Work Life Balance, UK
 
Progress has been made with the development of new policies to make Work Life Balance a reality.  However, the calls we receive on our helpline, over 55 per week, suggest there is till a long way to go until they are a reality for the majority of women returners.
 
We would like to hear what your concerns and experiences are regarding Work Life Balance.  If you would like to take part in our debate please post a message on our message board.
 
Our second issue is that of pensions and women. 

Many women are unaware of the finer details of pensions.  Which age will you receive your state pension?  You may find that changes in the law mean you will not receive any pension until you are 65!  Take a look at the Pension Service website to calculate your pension age.
 
Throughout July we will answer as many queries as we can - Contact Us.  Your comments will enable us to build a profile of your concerns that we can use to lobby the relevant organisations.
