Mums can you help?
What are your experiences of nannies & au pairs?

TV company betty is developing a FACTUAL DRAMA about childcare. We’d like to highlight some of the issues you face and it would be great to hear from you.

Hiring a nanny or an au pair can be a great solution to returning to work and ensuring your kids receive high-quality childcare. But, with the cost of living sky-high, parents are all too often forced to cut corners and rushed into hiring someone unsuitable for them – and there are times when for everyone it can go horribly wrong.

We’re keen to hear people’s stories that could be used to form our factual drama script. Your contribution would be in confidence and you would not be identified in the programme.

Whether you’re a parent, nanny or au pair, we’d like to hear about what the challenges have been for you.

If you’re interested in hearing more please contact Saskia in confidence on 0771 5111997 or
