Poor childcare "forcing Mums to stay at home"

Half of stay-at-home mums in the North West want to work but can’t get the childcare they need. Save the Children estimates there are over 104,000 stay-at-home mums in the North West who would prefer to work if they could arrange good quality childcare which is convenient, reliable and affordable. The charity says childcare issues are the number one barrier preventing mums in the North West from working.
