There has never been a more exciting time to join our dynamic, innovative organisation. Employers For Childcare Charitable Group is the only organisation in Northern Ireland which has transformed from being 100% grant dependent to being 100% self financing within four years. This unique achievement was accomplished in 2008 through visionary determination and a willingness to embrace commercial markets, without compromising ethos or values.
The aim of Employers For Childcare Charitable Group is ‘to make it easier for parents with dependent children to get into work and to stay in work’. We address childcare as an economic and a labour market issue.
The organisation has grown since its inception in 1999, from a small community based project into a thriving complex group of companies employing 30 staff.
Today the group comprises a registered charity and two Social Enterprises; Employers For Childcare Vouchers Limited and Employers For Childcare Solutions Limited. All profits made from the trading activities of these two wholly owned subsidiary companies are reinvested into the campaigning charity, which sits at the heart of everything we do.
Our charitable activities in Northern Ireland include the Family Benefits Advisory Service. Our highly qualified team offer free, impartial, confidential advice and information to parents on all aspects of childcare, employment entitlements and work related issues. They carry out ‘better off’ calculations helping parents make informed decisions about their current or potential financial circumstances ensuring that it actually pays to work. We carry out groundbreaking research which we use to campaign at local and national Government level for a better deal for working families.
