New Citizens Advice research outlining the difficulties parents can have accessing childcare made the papers this weekend. Ahead of a new report out next week, The Observer and Sun on Sunday covered our new findings that the struggle to get the right childcare is restricting people’s work choices.

The news comes as the Government published its Childcare Bill, extending the amount of free childcare available for three and four-year-olds to 30 hours per week. Citizens Advice is warning that unless the scheme is properly funded and childcare providers are encouraged to offer more flexibility, many working parents who need the scheme most will miss out.
