Commission into affordable childcare

New commission launched in Hackney

A new initiative has been launched in Hackney, which will see parents, local authority employees and childcare providers work together to find high quality, affordable and sustainable childcare solutions. 

The Commission into Affordable Childcare will work independently and provide advice to the Council in its approach towards building lasting partnerships with other local organisations (public, private or not for profit) focused on offering inclusive, sustainable childcare options. 

The initiative will bring together parents and carers, childcare providers, and other members of the local communities, who will look at local childcare offers, challenges, risks, and costs, as well as ways to maximise the support available for families in the borough. 

The first meeting of the Commission will take place before the end of March 2023. The Commission is expected to run for six to nine months.
