Nalo - for nannies, By Nannies
A Supportive UK Nanny Community
Welcome To Nalo
The name Nalo comes from an abbreviation of ‘The Nanny Lounge’, our popular Facebook group for nannies. It is pronounced in the same way you’d say ‘halo’, but with an ‘N’ of course.
We provide a supportive community for nannies in the UK and help nannies to receive the information, advice and guidance they need to be the best they can.
We know how isolating nannying can be at times so we host frequent meet ups and online events, as well as growing our online community.
We also run communities for nanny agencies, employers, and places for nannies and jobs to be advertised.
Go Gross Campaign
We have been campaigning since 2017 for nannies to be paid gross wage agreements (rather than net) to be in line with other professional industries
As nannies we have dealt with many different nanny agencies over the years and have designed the Nalo Halo to showcase the best agencies
When you’re used to knowing your ‘take home’ net pay, it can be confusing to know where to start when it comes to discussing in
For Mental Health Day 2020 we are sharing Nannies’ personal stories of how they manage their mental health.
We aim to educate nannies and turn all these bars green!
