Childcare support vital for rural families
Families relying on mobile childcare in the North East need Government support. In Question Time, Cathy called on the Government to guarantee new funding arrangements will give hundreds of families adequate financial help to access this important service. Mobile childcare services are effective, deliver positive outcomes and must be supported. Cathy has written to the Minister for Education, Simon Birmingham, and will continue to press the Government to ensure families have adequate support for this effective childcare service.
