The government is introducing new ways to help parents with childcare costs. Whether you have toddlers or teens, you could get support.
This information below is about the introduction in September 2017 of an additional 15 hours of free childcare for eligible working parents of 3 and 4 year olds.
30 Hours Free Childcare from September 2017: working families that meet the criteria will be entitled to 30 hours free childcare per week for 38 weeks of the year. This is an increase of 15 additional free childcare hours on top of the current 15 hours of free childcare / early education. It is estimated that 42% of 3 and 4 year olds will be eligible to the new entitlement of 30 hours of free childcare when it is introduced.
The aim of Stronger Families is to change the way families are supported to improve their lives using a whole family approach coordinating services through a lead worker.
