Abstract
The Equality Commission for Northern Ireland has identified women's caring responsibilities as a barrier to equality in employment (Equality Commission for Northern Ireland 2008). The aim of this paper is to inform the Equality Commission for Northern Ireland's position on the type, extent and delivery of childcare provision necessary to maximise the economic participation of women within Northern Ireland. It sets out recommendations on how the Government can improve childcare provision so as to better help mothers find, maintain and progress in employment.
