Childcare vouchers

You could save up to £1,000 a year.

The Family Support Team understand that the cost of having children doesn't stop at keeping them cared for while you're at work. That's why you can choose to take part of your salary in Childcare Vouchers to take advantage of important tax and NI savings.

In early 2017 a new tax-free childcare scheme will be introduced by the government.  Click here to find out more information.

The vouchers are supplied by Edenred and are available to both male and female employees, offering a number of benefits:

  • Choose to take up to £243 per month of your salary in Childcare Vouchers, which is tax and NI free, and make savings of up to £1,000 a year
  • Both parents can choose to use Childcare Vouchers providing their employer provides them, this means a family could save up to £2,000 a year 
  • Use Childcare Vouchers to pay for the care of children up to the age of 15, so if you have teenagers you can still benefit by using your vouchers to pay for after school clubs and activity holidays

For further information or to join or amend the voucher scheme today please contact Amanda Wilkinson, HR Welfare Support Officer.
