The government has withdrawn employer provided child care vouchers

Important changes to childcare vouchers

With effect from 4 October 2018, the Government has withdrawn employer provided child care vouchers. We partner Faircare Ltd to provide this scheme and they have now confirmed that they can no longer accept new applications. If you have an existing arrangement for vouchers this will continue until you opt out of the scheme. You can also still amend your monthly amount using the amendment form on the intranet and passing to payroll.

As an alternative, the government offers a range of tax-free child care help. There is plenty of information as well as calculators for the various schemes on offer available on the GOV.UK website.
