Family & Childcare Trust

Family and Childcare Trust aims to make the UK a better place for families, working with government, employers and parents to reduce pressures on family life.

Family & Childcare Trust have over 40 years of experience in research into family life. They use their expertise to campaign for quality childcare that is affordable and accessible to parents, ensuring families get a better work-life balance through a campaign to promote working rights for parents.

Their annual childcare costs survey is recognised as the definitive source of data on childcare in the UK, and their Report Card examines how family friendly we are as a nation. They work in partnership with local authorities and other organisations to ensure parents know about their entitlement to free childcare through consultancy work, work with Family Information Services, and through delivering information to parents through peer-to-peer schemes in local communities.

Their insight into the experiences of families enables them to work with organisations to promote the benefits of family friendly working practices, encouraging employers to recognise the needs of parents as employees. They also help organisations to design their products and services with the needs of families at the heart of their customer offer.
