Free night of fun and specialised childcare for parents of SEND children

We are offering parents of Special Educational Needs and Disabilities children (SEND), a free night of specialised childcare and a night of all-expenses paid fun on a night of their choice!

We want you to nominate fantastic parents who deserve to let their hair down – gifting them £200 to cover their night out and childcare. It is completely up to the winning parents what they do, whether that be a night on the town, a fancy dinner or a trip to the cinema.

They will also receive a year’s free Childcare.co.uk Gold membership, so they can find a qualified and registered childcare professional in their area. Three winners will be selected at random from the UK. We have more than 21,000 babysitters with special needs experience and with the Gold membership you’ll be able to message providers directly, easy peasy!

Fill out the below form to nominate, you will need to provide background information on the family and some details on the child/children’s condition along with any other children who need to be cared for.

All submissions need to be in by Monday 20th November and there are no geographical limitations as long as the family live in the UK!

Richard Conway, CEO and founder of Childcare.co.uk said,

“Being a parent of a child with SEND can be rewarding but can also be stressful and everyone needs a break now and again. Very often the needs of SEND children can be such that parents don’t take any time out for themselves, and we wanted to change that. We hope by offering a free night of childcare to these parents, they will be able to let their hair down with the knowledge their kids are being well looked after by a specialist child carer.

“By having friends and family nominate parents, we hope to find parents perfect for this offer. So, if you know someone in need of a night to themselves, whether that be a night on the town or a pamper evening, be sure to nominate them!”

Dr Adam Boddison CEO of Nasen said,

“Parents of children with SEND don’t always ask for help when it comes to childcare, and really they’re the ones who need it the most. It’s so easy for any parent to not make any time for themselves, especially around the Christmas period where stress levels can run high.

“We think this is a great initiative, and hopefully by making it as easy as possible for the winning parents to go out and have fun, they will see that it’s OK for them to let their hair down. It’s also a lovely feeling to know that your friends and family have nominated you and that they support and acknowledge the hard work you put in day-in and day-out as a parent.”

All nominations must be received by midnight on Monday, 20th November 2017.
