Hi all,

I hope this is okay to post on here. I am just looking for some feedback from parents around how difficult it can be for them to find a babysitter - not childminder - just casual babysitter - for their child with additional needs?

I have been looking into this for some time now and have not come across any forum or point of contact for parents to connect with babysitters who are qualified and reliable enough to babysit on a casual basis for their children with special/additional needs.

If anyone can point me in the right direction or even give me some feedback on their experiences that would be fantastic.
