Involve the young and old too

At the hubs connect pre-schoolers needing childcare with elderly or disabled adults living alone.  We know from the Dutch experience that they get on well.  Of course this would need space and appropriate safeguards and supervision.  But as well as providing a benefit to the adults it would free up parents for work purposes.  And a spin-off benefit might be that the experience of retirees is of benefit to those trying to start or grow a business.

Why the contribution is important

Adds a social benefit, and perhaps an economic one too, to the core idea.
