Can you save money on your childcare bills?

There are a wide range of funding options that parents can access to help them save money on their childcare costs, including:

· two government schemes for working parents: Tax Free Childcare and 30 hours free childcare
· free childcare for some two year olds
· PACE (Providing Access to Childcare and Employment), our European funded project which provides support for parents with a funded two year old to get into work, training or volunteering.

A copy of our leaflets can be downloaded here that will give an overview of the main funding options that are available.

If you would like to receive our leaflets by post, to distribute and display at your organisation, please let us know.
