About The Organisation
Many parents in the UK today are frozen out of work by the cost of childcare and disadvantaged children fall behind their peers before they even start school. Our client works to change this and to make the UK a better place for families.
They focus on childcare and the early years to make a difference to families’ lives now and in the long term. They work to make sure that every child has access to high quality childcare and every parent is better off working once they have paid for childcare. Families who face disadvantage, social exclusion and poverty are at the heart of their work.
Their parent-led programmes support families to achieve their potential and services to deliver solutions that meet families’ needs. The Parent Champions National Network has been running since 2007, helping families that are more likely to miss out on services to get the support that helps them to thrive.
This organisation's research provides definitive data on the issues families face, including their Childcare Survey which is the most widely used source of information on the costs and availability of childcare in the UK.
Bringing together what they learn from their on the ground work with families and their research, they make change happen by campaigning for solutions that families need.
Before August 2018, this charity was known by a different name.
