Media request: Looking for families who have struggled to get a mortgage because of childcare costs

I work with one of the UK's leading price comparison sites.

We will soon be launching a campaign focusing on how childcare costs can impact a family's mortgage application.

We’re really keen to speak with parents who have experienced this and how it has affected them. Did the cost of childcare have an impact on their application and the mortgage they were able to get? Did the mortgage lender take the children’s ages into account when assessing their affordability; i.e. recognised that you would only be paying nursery fees or another year before they start school. Any information or experiences on the issue would be greatly appreciated.

We will be giving shopping vouchers to all case studies who partake in media interviews.
