This Fertifa white paper explores how employers can create more inclusive workplaces for LGBTQ+ individuals
According to an ONS report, the number of same-sex couple families has grown by more than 53% since 2015. This figure includes families created through fertility treatments, surrogacy and adoption.
None of these paths to parenthood are straightforward and many couples – and indeed an increasing number of single people – are faced with a lack of NHS support, multiple appointments, medical investigations, gruelling drug regimes, financial strain, changing course when one route proves a dead end and often a myriad of stress and disappointment before the end goal is achieved.
This in-depth report reveals some startling statistics around LGBTQ+ and family-building and provides practical suggestions for employers on how to best support any staff who may be embarking on on an alternative path to parenthood.
