Commenting on the newly announced Parental Bereavement Leave and Pay Regulations - Jack's Law - that will allow working parents who suffer the loss of a child 2 weeks' statutory leave. Ben Sundell, Head of Policy and Public Affairs at Teenage Cancer Trust said

“Today’s announcement will be a small but important comfort for the hundreds of families every year who find themselves having to come to terms with the devastating loss of a child. This new policy is world leading and we hope it will provide the space families we support need, immediately after the bereavement of their child.”
