I have worked in the Civil Service since 1974 and have children now aged 20 and 10. Apart from two short breaks for maternity leave, I have continued to work since joining. I have never had regular childcare provision made available to me by my employer and have never been aware of any available at Civil Service sites in the areas I have lived or worked.
Despite campaigns by Civil Service unions, successive governments have not come up with anything meaningful for the vast majority of their employees with children.
