Employers For Childcare Charitable Group

Employers For Childcare Charitable Group

Employers For Childcare Charitable Group encompasses a registered charity and a social enterprise. Our mission is to make it easier for parents with dependent children to get into work and to stay in work.

We address childcare as a labour market issue, and as an economic issue. Our expertise in childcare and work related issues helps parents, employers, employees and childcare providers.

All of the charity work is financed by our social enterprise - Employers For Childcare Vouchers Ltd.


Our range of services aims to help families strike a work-life balance. We offer advice and information to employers, parents, community groups, childcare providers and Government departments on childcare and work related issues.

Freephone Helpline
Our Freephone Helpline is a great place to start for parents who need information on any aspect of childcare or work related issues.  For advice and information just call 0800 028 6538 or email us at [email protected].

Family Benefits Advice Service
Our Advisors work with parents to make them aware of the potential support available.  They offer one-to-one confidential benefits advice relating to childcare costs, including tax credits, Childcare Vouchers and flexible working arrangements.

Online Childcare Search
When considering childcare, one of the first challenges for parents is to find out exactly what provision is available in their area.  Our online search allows parents to find information on all types of registered childcare in their town or postcode area. 

Our research team is committed to addressing childcare as an economic and a labour market issue.  We undertake both quantative and qualitative research and have produced high quality, informative research to influence childcare and family work related policies.

Policy and Lobbying
We work to enact change at Government level by demonstrating through research and campaigns that childcare is both a labour market and an economic issue.  We lobby Government and influence policy on childcare and work related issues for the benefit of families.
