Budget update for working parents!

Following the budget announcement this afternoon it is apparent that belts will be being tightening in households across the country. Whilst some benefits have changed, or been frozen – including a freeze on child tax benefits for the next three years - families can still take full advantage of those benefits that remain available to them.

Thousands of families who could benefit from childcare vouchers are not using them – and thousands more do not realise that they could be using them right up until their children are aged 16.

I would actively encourage parents to speak to their employers to determine how they could benefit from a scheme that does so much to help so many – but could help many more.
