Red tape reminder

In England, the government is consulting childcare providers on the things that they perceive are holding them back from running successful businesses. In some areas, these might be planning issues - in others, delays in DBS checks. 

Please share your "red tape" concerns with us. We'll use your experiences to formally respond to the consultation. You are also encouraged to comment via the Cabinet Office or by email to The review will be open for comment until 20 May 2016.

Providers in Wales are welcome to send in concerns, too, and we'll pass them on.
