In October 2016, Working Families and the Childcare Voucher Providers Association (CVPA) held a roundtable on “The future of childcare support for working parents”. Our roundtable drew together stakeholders from the childcare and family advocacy sectors, as well as professional associations, and employers.
The discussion was held in advance of the roll-out of a new system of childcare support, Tax-Free Childcare, from early 2017.
Tax-Free Childcare marks a major change from child care vouchers, the existing scheme that provides support with childcare costs. Under current plans, the popular childcare vouchers scheme will be closed to new entrants from April 2018.
