In the last week all the main party manifestos are launched with main committments and pledges. Well worth reading!!
Our partnership remains fundamentally in support of high quality, affordable and accessible for all families and an effective choice to ensure that children grow and develop, thrive and learn, both within families and in childcare settings.
We work within local authorities and directly with settings to ensure that we are at the forefront of understanding and development.
Family and Childcare Trust are a campaigning organisation with a strong voice towards government understanding.
Julia Margo, Chief Executive has asked for support in the Family and Childcare Trust’s call to the next government to ensure that;
“Every parent is better off working, after they’ve paid for childcare and that every child can access high quality childcare to boost their learning”
At the end of the second day, Mariya, see above, and fifteen other new Parent Champions received certificates. Proud to be going out into the community to let other parents and families know about a whole range of services that are available for free for families with young children.
In Brent there is also a focus on Health. A new programme was discussed to help support families when they need health advice, without going straight to A & E. Radhikah Howarth, also with FCT, talked to the Parent Champions about new schemes that will help.
From the previous training last year there have been a record number of parents contacted and more and more information is now available to support parents and families.
