    Children

    The admin and logistics of caring for little people from newborns to school and college students takes so much time up in your week. Managing school emails, homework, activities, hobbies and friends parties - there is always something to Google, book and purchase.

    If your child gets sick, then we can also help organise emergency back up care from specialist and vetted nannies. If you need specialist help from lactation consultants to feeding experts or educational behavioural experts -we can help find the right people for you.

    If you have children with learning difficulties, a disability or health issue, this adds an extra circle of to-dos. We can assist with all of this, including keeping on top of doctor appointments and special care needs.

    BlckBx helps you take care of your little ones lives, so you have more time for them.

    Health

    Our family’s health is a priority but it's often so hard to get an appointment when you need it. BlckBx partners with leading online GP service Babylon Health, so we can set you up with them and get a virtual GP appointment that day. It's also open to your whole family to use.

    BlckBx can help take the pain away from weekly meal planning and grocery ordering.

    Thinking of new ways to feed your family takes time and research. Our in house nutritionist can discuss your family’s needs and create a rota of meals that are easy to cook or suggest weekly home meal services if you are too busy.

    We can help with allergies and intolerances too. If you want meals delivered, meals in a bag to cook yourself or all the ingredients from an online shop - we can accommodate that.

    Transport

    From remembering your MOT to researching a new bike, booking parking or ordering your season train ticket.

    If you have a family you are probably not only managing your own transport but are responsible for others too.

    Work and holiday travel can also be researched and booked by your virtual assistant whenever needed.

    We can also keep on eye on better travel insurance and help buy or hire the everyday family accessories needed such as car seats and buggies.

    75% of employees are stressed nearly every day juggling home and family responsibilities with their careers. BlckBx can take away the administrative and logistical burden so employees can focus on what's important.

    In 2019 the World Health Organisation officially added burn out to is International Classification of Diseases – defining it as chronic workplace stress that has not been successfully managed.

    For fathers, it's not enough to just offer parental leave. 30% want to be more present fathers. That means helping them work more effectively so they go home on time and not work weekends.

    74% of parents are stressed every day. We need proactive and pre-emptive benefits that tackle the heart of the burn out problem, not later when it's too late.

    93% of employees carry out family related tasks at work. BlckBx helps reduce interruption and drive productivity by taking away these tasks.

    A helping hand whenever you need it.

    Our people are amazing! Experienced, professional and friendly – our family assistants each have over 10 years experience in the field.
