About Employers for Childcare
Employers For Childcare encompasses a charity and the only social enterprise Childcare Voucher company in the UK, Employers For Childcare Vouchers.
Our Social Enterprise works with more than 2,500 employers across the UK, administering their Childcare Voucher schemes to help employees save money on the cost of registered childcare. Parents who avail of Childcare Vouchers save up to £933 per year, per parent, and employers also save on Employer’s National Insurance Contributions.
100% of the profit made through our Social Enterprise is invested in our independent charity which offers a free advice helpline and undertakes research providing up-to-date information on key issues and a robust evidence base to lobby Government on childcare, family and work related policy issues.
Our mission is to help working parents get into work and stay in work. When employers Buy Social and use Employers For Childcare Vouchers, as well as generating savings for themselves and their staff, they support our charity’s Family Benefits Advice Service to deliver free, impartial and confidential advice to help families across the UK maximise their incomes.
Last year, for every £1 invested in our charity, we identified a direct saving for parents of almost £17. Working parents who received a calculation from our team gained an average of £4,130. Others reported having the confidence to look for work as a result of advice they received. Find our more in our Social Impact Report: www.employersforchildcare.org/about-us/social-enterprise
