Affordable Childcare Review
Location: Online via Microsoft Teams
The City of Edinburgh Council has commissioned economic development consultants, ekosgen, to review the Council’s funding of affordable childcare for low income families. This important research comes in response to the Scottish Government’s expansion to 1140 hours of funded childcare, as well as policy commitments around the implementation of free wraparound care for priority school children, and boosts to the childcare element of tax credits and Universal Credit to help families pay for childcare.
ekosgen has been asked to consider how low-income families in Edinburgh who are looking to gain or sustain employment can be supported most effectively through the Council’s offer of affordable childcare. In doing so, ekosgen is seeking to understand whether the current delivery model is appropriate and provide recommendations on the best value future delivery model.
It is important that the research includes the views and experiences of all those involved in supporting low income families in Edinburgh, including employability providers. ekosgen will be facilitating a focus group (via Teams) for employability providers on Thursday 2nd June at 2pm-2:45pm. The focus group will explore these issues in detail and will give you the opportunity to share your perspectives on the challenges for low income families with employability and childcare support needs.
We would really appreciate you taking some time to participate in this focus group. It will be a confidential conversation and will last no more than 45 minutes. If you are happy to take part, could you please fill in the short form linked below:
If you cannot access the link above but wish to attend the focus group, please email Adam Ferguson at email@example.com to confirm your attendance.
Many thanks in advance for your help with this important piece of work. Please get in touch with Adam at ekosgen if you have any questions.
