Childcare Voucher Scheme

 

 CHILDCARE VOUCHER CHANGES THIS OCTOBER 2018

In Line with government changes from 4th October 2018, the existing WBC childcare voucher scheme run by Edenred will closed to new applicants.

 Existing members will however be able to stay in it, or choose to move to the government-run Tax Free Childcare.

 From September, all new applicants will apply directly to the government scheme.  https://www.gov.uk/help-with-childcare-costs/tax-free-childcare

 If you currently receive childcare vouchers, or plan to apply for them, you should consider whether you’d be better off using our existing (Edenred) scheme or joining the government scheme.  Link to Edenred:  http://www.childcarevouchers.co.uk/

 If you want to join the existing Edenred scheme, you must apply by the 31st August 2018.
