Survey of childcare users in Birmingham

Thank you for your interest in this online survey. This survey is being carried out by Coram, a children’s charity, on behalf of Birmingham City Council. Coram is not part of Birmingham City Council.

 Why are you doing a survey?

We would like to hear about the type of childcare you use and whether the right childcare and support is available to you.

By childcare we mean any form of childcare e.g. nurseries, child-minders, before and after school clubs, holiday playschemes as well as informal childcare such as grandparents.

 We hope that this project will help to improve access to childcare and support for other families in Birmingham.

What are the questions about?

It should take you about 10-15 minutes. We ask about your opinions, preferences and experiences of childcare for your child(ren), and  any further support you need.

We will also ask about you and your child, such as your age, gender, the area of Birmingham you live in, and ethnicity, so that we can make comparisons.

How will the survey be used?

We will write a report based on people’s answers. We will not publish your individual survey responses or share them with anyone outside the survey team.

The report will be published by Birmingham City Council in early 2022.

How will my data be protected?

This survey is anonymous and no names will be used in any reporting.

You will not be able to withdraw your answers once you have filled out the survey, because we will not be able to tell which answers are yours. Your answers will be stored in our secure folder until January 2024 when they will be deleted.
