Finding childcare

Last updated: 29 Jun 2021

Working Families is not able to help you to find childcare, although we do have some general information about finding childcare for disabled children. You can get more information about childcare options from the Family and Childcare Trust.

For help with finding childcare in your local area, you can contact your local council, which may have a Family Information Service or equivalent. The Family and Childcare Trust have an interactive tool to help you find your local childcare or family services.

This advice applies in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. If you live in another part of the UK, the law may differ. Please call our helpline for more details.
