Childcare Vouchers & Other Employment Schemes

Download Our Funding Guides

Childcare vouchers, as well as directly contracted childcare (childcare your employer arranges with a provider, such as salary sacrifice) have been discontinued by the government. However, if you joined either one of these schemes on or before 4 October 2018, you’ll still be able to receive these vouchers and use them to support your childcare payments with us – provided you’ve stayed with the same employer, and they still run this scheme.

These two types of childcare funding have since been replaced by tax-free childcare, which you can sign up for here.

Please note that if you do decide to apply for tax-free childcare, you will no longer receive any of the above-mentioned schemes’ funding and you won’t be able to go back to using them.

If you’re unsure of whether to should stick to childcare voucher or twist to tax-free childcare funding, here is a useful calculator to help you decide.
