ABOUT CHILDCARE FOR ALL

Childcare for All is a network of organisations that have come together to call for universal, child-centred childcare that meets the needs of children, families, childcare workers and providers and benefits society. We have developed a Childcare for All charter setting out a vision of a childcare system that is affordable, accessible, flexible, high quality, and which supports children’s education and development. We also want to see the value of childcare work recognised with decent pay and terms and conditions.

CHILDCARE FOR ALL EVENTS

The coalition was established in early 2018. We set an ambitious programme of work for our first year during which time the coalition has grown, establishing a bank of knowledge and experience from across a range of sectors, and pushing for progress by organising a number of events to build the presence of the coalition.

LAUNCH AT STORMONT

In May 2018 we launched the campaign at Stormont with political representatives and policy makers, and were delighted to secure widespread support from each of the parties.

FAMILY ENGAGEMENT DAY

At a Family Engagement Day in November 2018 we gave families an opportunity to meet, discuss their experiences and put their views directly to politicians. Families focused on the affordability of childcare but also on the importance of accessing suitable childcare for children with disabilities or complex needs.

POLICY CONFERENCE

On Monday 11 March 2019, the Childcare for All Campaign hosted ‘Childcare Policy Development in NI: Exploring Drivers and Addressing Barriers’ in Riddel Hall, Belfast. The conference was sponsored by the Equality Commission for Northern Ireland and the Administrative Data Research Centre NI and brought together ninety participants from government departments including education, health and finance and diverse organisations who are concerned with child poverty, disability and gender equality.
