Childcare sector is at risk of collapse – Rebecca Long Bailey

Rebecca Long Bailey MP, Shadow Education Secretary, commenting on the Early Years Alliance’s report and findings that childcare settings are facing significant losses which may lead to childcare shortages, said:


“Childcare will be necessary for families to get back to work and for the economy to recover but the sector is at risk of collapse with many providers facing huge losses.


“Labour has been calling for better financial support for childcare providers to cope with significantly reduced demand and additional safety costs in this crisis. The government needs to think long term and take action prevent catastrophic collapse now.’’
