All kids from newborn up to leaving full time education require a licence to work 

Please download the documents as shown below and once compelted and signed they are to be uploaded into your profile in the 'Licensing' area. Please do not contact councils under any circumstances, only the clients and agency should do this unless otherwise instructed by us.

Some councils offer open licences and if you fall under their area you need to apply for one now. Children with open licences are in high demand.

Only a few councils issue opens, please email for application details if you live in Haringey, or Herefordshire.

Birmingham & Liverpool City do not issue open licences but you should also email for information specific to that council as they require their own specifics.

All other councils please download your docs below and once completed upload to your profile.
