Terms & Conditions
BAPN is a membership association serving the needs of nannies (home childcarers). We also offer Corporate Membership to businesses such as nanny agencies, training organisations, and providers of childcare / early years resources. We appreciate that some nannies do also run nanny agencies and/or associated companies and, in such cases, unless Corporate Membership is also purchased, BAPN membership covers their working time as a nanny ONLY.
Conflict of Interest: should a nanny own, work for or in some other way be associated with a company offering services and products in direct competition with BAPN they will not be eligible for BAPN membership on grounds of a potential conflict of interest. Should this clause apply to a nanny once in membership we would respectfully request that they inform BAPN and resign from membership. If it comes to BAPN’s attention that this clause applies to a nanny in membership, BAPN will write to nanny seeking clarification and if a conflict of interest is apparent, BAPN will withdraw BAPN membership with immediate effect. This clause is non-negotiable as it protects the integrity of BAPN business.
Membership is valid for 12 months from the date of joining/payment. We will send you a reminder when your membership is due for renewal.
Change in Personal Details
Please inform BAPN of any change in your personal details, e.g. name or address.
BAPN will aim to respond to membership requests and renewal of membership within 24 hours from the date of contact. As these responses are automated, please contact us should a delay occur email@example.com
How to cancel your BAPN Membership/ Returns Policy
If you decide to cancel your membership within 14 days of receiving your membership confirmation, we will refund the price you paid for membership in full, provided that you inform us in writing, requesting cancellation.
However, should you have taken advantage of our employment advice, support and/or representation, joined via a promotion or accessed any other of our member benefits, you will not be eligible for a refund. Where a member has breached any rule(s) of membership, membership will be terminated with no refund due. Cancellation at any other time will NOT generate a subscription refund.
If BAPN cancels your BAPN Membership
We reserve the right to cancel your membership, if you do not adhere to BAPN’s Code of Conduct or should any of your actions bring BAPN into disrepute. No refund of subscription will be paid in these circumstances. Director decision is final in all cases.

Should a member’s employment issue require legal opinion or assistance, for example, consideration as to whether an employment tribunal claim can be pursued, BAPN will advise members accordingly. BAPN retains the services of expert lawyers and can refer members. However, members can if they wish, appoint their own solicitor at their own expense. Should a member wish to instruct BAPN's Legal Partner, BAPN, on member's instructions, will hand over all work carried out by BAPN to that point. Should the member decide to instruct a solicitor to take their case forward this will be done at the member's expense.
