About the author
Hello!Thank you for visiting www.dadonspl.com
I'm Joe and I became a first-time dad at 34 to our first child, MC.
We live in East London. I like to think of myself as a lawyer by day; musician by night (though I'm now usually only jamming on the sofa!)
My partner and split Shared Parental Leave equally between us - both taking 6 months off work to look after MC. My partner took the first 6 months and I took the second 6 months.
The current aims of this website are:
- To diarise my experience of taking leave with MC through my blog;
- To encourage other Dads (or same-sex mums) to take advantage of Shared Parental Leave; and
- To promote general awareness of the benefits of taking Shared Parental Leave for individuals, families, commercial entities and wider society.
Do get in touch with me on LinkedIn - I'm always keen to collaborate with like minded professionals.
All the best
