As UK police forces drive forward recruitment drives such as Operation Uplift, there are increased proportions of female officers and staff recruited. Two main priorities across the board are wellbeing and inclusion. It is therefore essential we better understand the organisational health and personal wellbeing of officers and staff, as a direct consequence of pregnancy and maternity leave. This research seeks to join up the actual experiences of both officers and staff who have been pregnant and had a period of maternity leave.
The key aims of this research.
|Examining the impact of pregnancy, maternity leave and returning to work on women in policing
|Mothers and maternity leave: Are police forces past their 'due date'?
