Bubble for good

Supporting parents to be all they need to be

Helping the NHS

During the pandemic, we enabled sitters to offer voluntary childcare to NHS workers

Through the app, NHS workers could find and request sitters who were prepared to provide free childcare. We also waived our booking fees on these sits.

Volunteer sitters have provided over 1400 hours of free childcare to NHS workers on Bubble.

We were also incredibly grateful to have received so much support from the public, as well as from those in the public eye such as Rachel Riley and Giovanna Fletcher.

I’ve learnt that in these changing times, flexible childcare is a must, and we can’t always rely on the old format. It’s been an extremely stressful time. But having Bubble essentially enabled me to save lives”

Empowering Entrepreneurs

Through our TERN partnership, we helped provide free childcare to female entrepreneurs who are refugees

TERN’s goal is to enable refugees to thrive by supporting them to launch their own businesses. Their goal is to improve the livelihoods of 5,000 refugees, and to help 2,000 to launch their own businesses.

Here at Bubble, we want to support parents to be all they need to be. We recently launched a partnership with TERN, to provide childcare to female entrepreneurs who are refugees.

The partnership was a great success, and we’re looking forwards to working more with TERN over the coming months.

Meet a TERN entrepreneur

A mum of two and food entrepreneur, who received free childcare through the TERN partnership.

Originally from Eritrea, a busy mum of two was living in Saudi Arabia as a domestic worker for over a decade after being separated from her family aged 15.

She came to the UK in 2015 and lives in Greenwich. She runs a food business and has found cooking a real source of comfort throughout her life – she used to cook with her mother as a child, and says that cooking helps her to remember her family and her home country.

Here’s what she had to say about Bubble:

“As a female entrepreneur, it was very hard to focus on my business with two kids. I have a 2 year old boy and 3 year old girl. Since I joined Bubble I’ve got a lot more time to spend on my business and even on myself. I don’t have enough words to say thank you for the Bubble app”

Supporting Schools

Helping PTAs to fundraise by donating Bubble subscriptions and vouchers

We know how difficult the last few years have been for PTAs. Last year, we helped to support schools by offering donations for raffles and auctions.

If you’re looking for support for your PTA, then please get in touch and we can see what we can do to help.
