Petition Offer 15hrs free childcare for multiples under 3 years
There is currently no free childcare scheme for parents who are not claiming benefits to help them with childcare before their children are 3 years old. This is a particular issues for parents who have multiples (twins, triplets etc).
Having to pay double (or more) for childcare is prohibitively expensive in the early years before age 3 when the Government childcare funding kicks in. Having multiples is a blessing but it comes with a lot of financial strain. The detrimental impact of financial strain from not being able to work or earn enough to fund childcare can have a direct impact. If you are unable to return to work as your pay doesn't cover care, can you afford bills, food etc?
