Impact Hub Birmingham and F A M A L A M have been successful in securing a small pot of development money from Big Lottery Fund to work to understand what’s needed to make Birmingham & the Black Country a home for system wide innovation around childcare, children and families.

At this stage Kidoop is just a prototype, but we hope that a resource like Kidoop might help to make Parent Childcare Cooperatives a feasible alternative here in the UK, one that is more flexible, affordable and rooted in community, allowing children, parents and communities to thrive.
