The report will put forward key policy initiatives which could be undertaken to reduce barriers to employment arising from the cost of childcare for a targeted group of families.Avril McMonagle, County Childcare Manager, is responsible for bringing the initiative forward.She said “In recent years the cost of childcare in Ireland has warranted considerable media attention, however, solutions to the problem have not come to the fore.“Therefore, Donegal County Childcare has commissioned this research as an independent examination of whether the cost of childcare represents a barrier to labour force participation. The proposal offers an examination of policy options to address childcare obstacles which may exist to increase employment’. Anyone interested in attending the launch and accessing full findings and proposals should contact Donegal County Childcare on 074 9123442. MINISTER TO LAUNCH DONEGAL CHILDCARE RESEARCH PROJECT was last modified: November 24th, 2013 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Donegal County Childcareresearchlast_img read more
