In order to help you make these savings, the Trust has introduced a Childcare Vouchers scheme in partnership with Edenred, who launched the first Childcare Vouchers scheme to the UK almost 20 years ago, and have made it as easy as possible for you to enjoy the benefits of Childcare Vouchers, helping to make your life/work better.
If you are using registered or approved childcare, you can choose to take part of your salary in Childcare Vouchers to pay for it.
Childcare Vouchers are not just for babies – they can be used to pay for the care of children up to the age of 15 or 16 if they are disabled.
This can include:
home based care such as childminders and nannies
pre-school care such as nursery schools and crèches;
care for older children such as out of school clubs (breakfast clubs and afterschool clubs) and holiday clubs
