Employers For Childcare encompasses a Social Enterprise and registered charity. 100% of the profits from their Social Enterprise are invested into their charitable activities – all of which support parents, employers and childcare providers. Their aim is to address childcare, not only as a social issue but also as a labour market and economic issue.
The charity was developed from a community project set up in 1998, encouraging employers to implement family friendly policies in the workplace. The founding Chief Executive identified the barrier a the lack of affordable, quality childcare presents to working parents.
