Employers for Childcare
The Childcare Voucher scheme is due to close to new entrants on 4 October 2018, following a six month extension announced in March. If this goes ahead, expectant parents, working families not registered before then, and existing users of Childcare Vouchers who change jobs after October, will lose out on vital savings – up to £933 per parent per year. Employers For Childcare is campaigning to keep Childcare Vouchers open to new entrants permanently, as part of a comprehensive and flexible package of support for working families.
They are asking parents, employers and childcare providers to lobby their local MP in support of this campaign – further details on how to do this are available on the Employers for Childcare website – it’s free, easy to do and takes less than five minutes.
