The Government has announced that it plans to delay the closure of the current Childcare Voucher Scheme for six months.

The scheme was due to close to new joiners in April to make way for the new Tax Free Childcare Scheme. The news means that Co-op colleagues are still able to apply for childcare vouchers through the Co-op Flexible Benefits (Mid Counties) website.

However, if you’re a working parent it’s still important to understand how both schemes work, so you can decide which one is best for you.
