Allow grandparents to be paid under the Child Tax Credit system to look after their grandchildren while parents go out to work. This will be better for the child and family overall. It's ridiculous that an outsider can get money for childminding, yet someone who is closer to the child and who understands the child better gets no help at all.

Why is this idea important?

Family is valued more instead of fragmented. We need to localise more as we reduce carbon output. Strong families form strong communities too, at the end of the day.
