The Family and Childcare Trust’s annual childcare survey will be published on Wednesday 24 February, and because this usually attracts a great deal of media coverage, they’re looking for parents who are happy to talk to either newspaper journalists, radio or TV presenters about childcare issues. Can you help?


This year they will be looking at childcare costs as a proportion of median salaries for some occupations, such as police officers, nurses, soldiers, warehouse managers, primary school teachers, bricklayers and fire officers.


They’ll also be looking at whether there is enough childcare in each region for working parents, disabled children, and atypical workers – and particularly those looking for after-school clubs. We’d like to speak to parents who have struggled to find the right childcare and find this has been a barrier to work.


If you are in touch with groups of families who may have a story to tell about childcare, The Family and Childcare Trust would be very grateful if you could share their appeal for media spokespeople. For further information contact Rebecca Griffin on 020 7940 7533 or
