The Childcare Voucher scheme is due to close to new entrants on 4 October 2018. This means the relevant salary sacrifice arrangements with your employer must be in place on or before 4 October i.e. the first payday you receive a reduced salary.
Working parents, and parents to be, will be unable to join the scheme after this deadline and stand to lose out on vital childcare support. This change will see most working families receive less support for childcare.
Join our campaign to #SaveChildcareVouchers now – lobby your MP to keep the scheme open alongside Tax-Free Childcare so that all working parents can choose the support that best suits their individual family needs.
How to support the campaign:
Are you affected?
✔ Parents accessing Childcare Vouchers and changing job after 4 October
✔ Parents or prospective parents needing childcare when their first child is born after 4 October
✔ Employers wanting to offer Childcare Vouchers to new staff – not just those already in the scheme after 4 October
