Nannies

HubWorks! has been approved by DSS to participate in the Nanny Pilot Programme. The Australian Government's two year Nanny Pilot Programme will provide subsidised care for children to help participating families with the cost of using a nanny. It will support families who struggle to access child care services, particularly if they work non-standard hours, or live in regional or remote areas or away from existing child care. The pilot programme will formally commence in early 2016 when service providers begin matching nannies to participating families. The start date for a nanny will depend on each families requirements, and when a suitable nanny is available. The pilot programme will run until 31 December 2017. An independent evaluation will take place throughout the pilot to help the Government develop future policy for care provided in the family home.
