We know that finding childcare can be difficult. Rochdale LA have made us aware that babysitting services are being offered via a website called nextdoor.co.uk. Parents in the borough have used this site unaware that those offering their services have not been vetted and safety checked. This opens the door to adults intending to harm children. The ‘Safe After School’ parent booklet provides advice to parents when selecting tutors, babysitters, childminders and out of school activities. This booklet will help you to ensure that the relevant checks have been undertaken and the appropriate questions asked to safeguard your child. Rochdale LA also holds a list of all registered childminders in the area.
