Employers For Childcare Vouchers
5th September 2018
The only Social Enterprise Childcare Voucher company in the UK which distributes 100% profit for social good.
A founding member of the CVPA, Employers For Childcare provides Childcare Voucher schemes to over 2,500 companies across the UK. They offer one to one client support, a free charity helpline & outreach service for employees seeking advice on family benefits and childcare costs.
Childcare Vouchers save parents & employers thousands of pounds each year - parents can swap part of their salary to contribute towards their childcare costs. Families can save up to £933 per year, per parent because the amount they swap is deducted from their salary before tax and National Insurance is applied. The employer also saves money on National Insurance Contributions.
Employers For Childcare Vouchers administers a Childcare Voucher scheme for some of the top companies in the UK, including IKEA, Coca Cola, RNLI and the Northern Ireland Civil Service.
As a result of parents and employers choosing to ‘buy social’ and using Employers For Childcare to administer their Childcare Voucher Scheme in the last ten years, not only have they saved money, but they have enabled us to invest £5.2 million into our charity the 'Family Benefits Advice Service' helping working families across the UK. In 2016/17 alone, our charity’s helpline fielded over 10,000 calls and carried out over 400 outreach advice sessions. Working parents who received a 'personal benefits check' gained an average of £4,310 in savings - collectively they saved more than £14.8 million.
Employers For Childcare aims to make it easier for parents with dependent children to get into work and to stay in work. The organisation is the only 'not for profit' Childcare Voucher company in the UK, meaning 100% of the profit from the Voucher company is donated to our charity the 'Family Benefits Advice Service'.
Our charity, encompasses a Freephone helpline for parents and employers, an outreach advice service and research and lobbying work. We provide advice & information to families and businesses about childcare, the financial help available, other family benefits and employment law. For every member of staff an employer signs up to our Voucher Scheme allows our charity to field 17 telephone calls or 2 outreach sessions for families or employers.
