My Bereavement Leave and Pay Bill, builds in the cross party work I did in 2018 to deliver two weeks of paid leave for all parents who lose a child up to the age of 18 and also for those who lose a child through stillbirth and will have its Second Reading on 18th March.

This Bill proposes to extend this statutory paid bereavement leave to all those who lose a close family member.

With 150,000 deaths from Covid, so many of us have suffered grief in recent years in very difficult circumstances. The time for the devastating impact grief can have on us to be recognised in law, has come. Please share this post and support this petition to send a message to the the U.K. Government that this measure has your support.
