Keep Time for Children is a campaign which seeks to protects shared time for families. Families are key to our society. They are crucial for raising the next generation and teaching them social skills, as a well as providing emotional, physical, financial and spiritual care. What children want and need more than anything else is time with their parents. Yet today’s children are being time-starved. Keep Time for Children focuses primarily on the hidden crisis of weekend working, the two days when school-aged children will be at home and in need of parenting. Findings from the National Centre for Social Research, commissioned by Keep Time for Children, revealed that around 1.4 million parents are working regularly through the whole weekend and over 2.5 million families are affected by a parent working regularly over the weekend. These parents are more likely than others to be poorly-qualified and on a low income.
