Become a BCCN Childminder

What is involved in being a BCCN childminder?

BCCN aims to provide services to support families and children who have significant additional needs or are considered vulnerable. The network is always looking for new childminders to join. Here are some comments from current BCCN childminders and families that BCCN has provided care for:

“I have been working with this family for years and it’s so rewarding to see how much improvement not only the children have made but the family as a unit.” 
- BCCN Childminder

“This is the most important county provided intervention we have received in the last 6 years, if only it has come sooner-perhaps we would not be in crisis”
- Family BCCN provided support for

“The family (BCCN childminder's) were amazing, really nice please, especially when I had a breakdown in the early hours of the morning. I took a while to settle but have enjoyed it the best I can. Massive thank you”
- A young person who was supported by BCCN
