Today I joined Eythorne and Elvington parish Cllr Mog Ovenden at the Elvington Big Breakfast. This is a great event organised by the local Sure Start. It was great to get round and chat to everyone about how they manage to juggle child care and work. This is a current interest of mine as I sit on the Welfare Reform bill committee.
How we can do more to help with the pressures of modern family life is a real concern. Making child care easier to access and less expensive would make a real difference - especially as latest figures show that some 66% of parents with children joint work.
