Join us as we launch our new report with the Joseph Rowntree Foundation

Finding good quality, affordable, childcare has long been a challenge for families across Wales. Over recent years significant efforts have been made to address some of these challenges, with further reform on the horizon. There continue to be concerns, however, that the system is not as effective as it could be, in particular with regards to reducing poverty and inequality. 

As we mark the two year anniversary of the publication of the Senedd’s Equality and Social Justice Committee’s landmark report, Minding the future, the childcare barrier facing working parents, join the Bevan Foundation and the Joseph Rowntree Foundation as they launch their new report – Tackling disadvantage through childcare in Wales and have your say on the challenges facing the childcare system in Wales.
