How Old Do You Have to Be to Legally Babysit in the UK?

Answer

The law does not set a minimum age at which children can be left alone in the UK. However, it is an offence to leave a child alone when doing so puts him or her at risk. The NSPCC recommends choosing a babysitter over the age of 16 years.
