Why are we supporting this petition?
As a charity that works to support families to be better off we regularly give advice to parents about the different forms of financial support available to assist them with their childcare costs, and help them choose what is best in their particular circumstances, whether that is Childcare Vouchers or another form of support. Our charity is urging the Government to keep Childcare Vouchers open to new entrants alongside the new scheme, Tax-Free Childcare, so parents can continue to choose the financial support that best suits them and their families. This is especially important since our work with parents shows that many families will receive more support under Childcare Vouchers compared to Tax-Free Childcare.
