  • DWP Childcare Choices toolkit 

    Created: 28/07/2022

    The Department for Work and Pensions has announced that over a million families in the UK are entitled to support with the costs of childcare from the Government, but many are missing out because the childcare providers in their area haven’t signed up to accept the various offers.  This also means that many childcare providers are missing out on boosting their businesses by increasing demand as they aren’t accessible to families who use government childcare offers.   

    It is more important than ever that parents and carers can access the financial aid they qualify for. It can reduce their costs, help them to stay in work, or help them work more hours if they choose. 

    To support as many parents as possible, the Department for Education has launched a campaign to increase awareness of the support families could be entitled to, along with the number of childcare providers who are accessible to parents using the different kinds of offers.  

    Further information and assets to support the campaign can be found in the Childcare Providers information and communications toolkit.
