Government should broaden access to childcare vouchers

5th September 2012

The National Childminding Association, the Daycare Trust and the Family and Parenting Institute have asked the government to improve on the assistance they offer people with children.

Anand Shukla, chief executive of the Daycare Trust said: "A quick and straightforward way of reducing childcare costs for families by as much as £2,000 a year would be to broaden access to childcare vouchers to all parents in work. We are calling on the childcare commission to explore as a matter of priority how best to extend childcare voucher provision quickly so that the significant savings can benefit all working parents, including the self-employed."
