Childminder Referral Scheme

Birmingham Childminder Referral Scheme

Are you a social worker who needs to identify a childminder for a family you are working with that would benefit from respite hours or for specific dates/times for parents to attend meetings.

You will need to complete a referral form and return to us, we will identify and allocate the appropriate childminder, with the relevent skills and experience. Your team manager will need to agree the funding for this.

We have a dedicated team, who cover the city, to provide individual and specialised support to co ordinate the package of care.

Please visit the contact us page or give us a call for more details.

From the 1st March 2018 Corporate funding has now been transferred over to the new contracted provider, please visit the Birmingham Forward Steps website for more information and to complete a request for service form.

Please note this is only available for children aged under 5.
