This report presents findings from a Rapid Evidence Assessment of research into childcare issues and barriers encountered by parents and carers.

It synthesises evidence from 15 studies published by academic, government and organisation / charity sources. The research identifies common issues for these parents and carers when accessing childcare. It considers potential causes for these issues and presents recommendations for further investigation to address evidence gaps. The findings will be used to inform future research and the development of childcare policies.
