A small but growing number of fathers are taking up shared parental leave, a policy that allows mothers to transfer part of their maternity leave to their partner. We spoke to Barclays employees Cameron Kirkwood and Benjamin Tancock about taking time out to care for their children – and how perceptions about childcare are changing.
