Join the March of the Mummies in Exeter
Wake up our zombie-like leaders. And shine a light on the UK’s appalling childcare record
29th October 2022, EXETER
The horrors of the UK’s childcare system would be enough to scare anyone, even if it wasn’t Halloween
We’re meant to be a “global leader”. Yet our childcare system is the second most expensive in the world, thanks to years of underfunding from the Government, with full-time care for a toddler costing 48% of the average wage.
Timid government responses aren’t enough to scare childcare costs away
The Conservatives have promised a childcare announcement “imminently”. But it’s yet to materialise.
Labour should be leading the way. But instead, it’s dragging its feet like it’s the start of the zombie apocalypse. Their current proposal, free breakfast clubs, won’t even touch the sides when childcare fees are now so expensive that they outstrip many parents’ incomes.
It’s time to be bold
Register for your local March for Mummies in Exeter. WE’re demanding bold action:
👉Free, universal childcare
👉Flexible working as the default
👉Ring fenced, properly paid parental leave
Together, WE march for our futures
