Political debate on childcare in Northern Ireland

Join CBI members for an online political debate with the five Executive Parties on the long-awaited childcare strategy for Northern Ireland.

During the height of the pandemic, the CBI NI Future Leaders’ Network identified childcare as one of the most significant challenges that young professionals had to manage, with the pandemic exacerbating the problems of choice and affordability. We will be joined by Employers’ for Childcare who will share analysis from their most recent research.

Ahead of the next Northern Ireland Assembly Election, this event presents an exciting opportunity to listen to elected representatives discuss their priorities for childcare for the next Assembly term.
