30 Hours Free Childcare / Tax-Free Childcare

Apply now for more Government support with childcare: Tax-Free Childcare and 30 hours free childcare

If you’re a working parent, you can apply now for two new government childcare schemes launching this year – Tax-Free Childcare which begins immediately and 30 hours free childcare which starts in September.


You can apply through the new digital childcare service if you have a:

  • child under 4 on 31st August 2017; or
  • disabled child who is under 17.

To apply visit www.childcarechoices.gov.uk


If you have a child who will be over 4 on 31st August you can sign up to receive email alerts here Keep Me Updated – you’ll get a message later this year about when you can apply.


If eligible for Tax-Free Childcare you’ll receive a government top-up of £2 for every £8 that you pay into your Tax-Free Childcare account.



More information on the government’s childcare schemes is available here: www.childcarechoices.gov.uk. It also includes a childcare calculator to find out how much you could receive.
