The growing cost of raising kids

One of the main aims of the National Conversation is identifying the new challenges faced by our society (beyond Beveridge’s 5 Giant Evils).

With more parents wanting – or needing, perhaps more accurately – to go out to work, the costs of child care is a growing issue.

Graeme Cooke of the Institute of Public Policy Research, frames the challenge in this short video*.

Thanks to Charlie Robinson for flagging up this clip.
