In the context of a twenty-year decline in the number of childminders registered in London, The Family and Childcare Trust spoke to 16 people who were previously registered childminders working in London. Interviewees were asked about why people take up childminding, why they are leaving the profession, and whether the GLA (Greater London Authority) can take any steps to support and encourage childminders to remain in the profession.
