About Regulation Matters

Established in 2006, the Regulation Matters Campaign (RM) is unique in that its focus is on campaigning for the professionalism of the nanny sector by calling for the registration of nannies and regulation of nanny agencies.

One of the main aims of the campaign is to bring to public attention the fact that the nanny sector is not regulated in the UK and could, potentially, pose a real threat to the safeguarding of children cared for in their own homes. 


Over the years, and after numerous meetings with ministers and ministerial government departments, RM has been able to raise awareness, following which, nannies can now choose to register on the Voluntary part of the Ofsted Childcare Register.  However, it is still the case that anyone can call themselves a nanny and anyone can set up a nanny agency which is why our campaign to have nannies registered and nanny agencies regulated continues.

RM includes some of the most established associations / organisations and companies UK wide.  Working together, RM establishes the ‘Nanny Sector’ as a major contributor to the childcare and early years workforce.
