Support and advice

Our Family Benefits Advice Service provides advice and guidance to parents, employers and childcare providers. This includes advising on the latest developments in relation to childcare support, carrying out personalised ‘better off’ calculations and sharing up-to-date information on issues such as employment rights for parents. Our charity also carries out research into childcare issues and lobbies Government at all levels across the UK.

We can deliver free, tailored advice sessions within childcare settings  for both employees and parents. Here’s some feedback on a recent session hosted by one of the team:
