Abertay and One Parent Families Scotland Working Together

Thanks to a unique partnership between Flexible Childcare Services Scotland (FCSS) and Abertay Housing Association, families in Dundee are being given greater opportunities to engage in training, education and employment, ensuring they have successful and sustainable tenancies.

By working with FCSS, who deliver flexible childcare services and have onsite crèche facilities, Abertay Housing Association are able to ensure families on low incomes have the time to participate, giving them a greater opportunity to get back in to work.

FCSS, the only charity in Scotland to deliver and champion flexible childcare provision, was created after it was found that parents were unable to accept offers of employment due to a lack of high quality, flexible, accessible and affordable childcare services.

Families who use FCSS’s unique services are able to book day care by the hour, only paying for the time they book. They aren’t subject to any up-front costs, deposits or holiday retainers and they can arrange home based care where experienced staff work within the home.

FCSS also provide a pickup and drop off service ensuring that children have access to childcare and afterschool care irrespective of their parents’ education or employment commitments.
