This is a free event
Childcare For All Family Fun Day! Save the Date. 17th Nov 10am-12pm Mencap Centre, Belfast
An opportunity for all parents and children who support the call for universal childcare to find out more about the Childcare For All campaign. Speak to elected representatives, meet the organisations behind the campaign, and record your views on the childcare issues you face as a family. Free activities for children in a fully accessible venue.

Childcare For All is a coalition of community and voluntary sector organisations who campaign for universal child-centred childcare that meets the needs of children, families, childcare workers and providers, and benefits society. We publicly launch the campaign in Stormont in May with full support from all the main political parties. 

Since then we've been supporting parents to tell their childcare stories through social media as well as working with MLAs and policy makers to keep childcare on the agenda.

We are having this family-friendly launch because the campaign belongs to families. The families who are under stress because they can't keep up with childcare costs, those who've had their benefits cut or face more pressure to increase their working hours but without suitable childcare available, families in rural areas who can't access childcare nearby, families where a child's disability makes it almost impossible to get suitable childcare... These are the stories we hear every day and these families are the heart of this campaign. 

We're inviting you to come along and have your say, find out more and see if you'd like to get involved. We also welcome representatives from organisations who'd like to come and pledge their support for Childcare For All.
