Childcare Connector Service can help identify childcare, such as nursery, a childminder, after school clubs etc. as well as sort out how to pay for it.
We know how challenging it is to combine work or education with parenting responsibilities. It is discouraging to encounter waiting lists, lack of flexibility and the cost of childcare and we would like to help to overcome these barriers by supporting you to find funding, understand how benefits might be affected and get through the first month when money is tight. We believe that having the right childcare will enable you to reach your goals, achieve financial independence and take an equal part in your community.
