CSA Provider Questionnaire

Closed 12 Dec 2021

Opened 23 Nov 2021


Thank you for your interest in this online survey helping to improve childcare in Birmingham. 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 and does not work for any childcare providers.

Why are you doing a survey?

We want to hear your views and experience of the childcare market. We want to know what support is available to you and what further support you need.

We aim to identify areas of need in the childcare market and improve access to childcare and support for families in Birmingham.

What are the questions about?

This survey should take about 10-15 minutes to complete. We ask about the type of the childcare your setting offers, the supply and demand for childcare you experience, the impact of Covid-19 on your setting, and financial sustainability.

How will the survey be used?

We will write a report based on childcare providers’ 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 data 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 it will be deleted.
