 As a social enterprise, our mission is to support parents with dependent children to get into work, and to stay in work. This benefits families, employers and the economy as a whole. Our Childcare Voucher service is key to this, in enabling parents to save money on the cost of childcare. At the same time, the profit we generate through operating our Childcare Voucher business is invested directly into our charity, enabling our Family Benefits Advice Service to support families right across the UK – a service that is particularly critical amidst the ongoing and worsening cost of living crisis.

Marie Marin, Chief Executive of Employers For Childcare, expressed her thanks to everyone who completed the survey and to all those who use our Childcare Vouchers:

“Your feedback is so important to us as an organisation, and I am delighted to hear that the parents and employers who use our service have had such a positive experience. This is something we are deeply committed to, and I would like to express my thanks to the dedicated team of staff at Employers For Childcare who make it possible.

“I’m also grateful to the many employers who have chosen to ‘buy social’ and use Employers For Childcare’s Childcare Vouchers to support their staff with their childcare costs, enabling us to continue our charity’s vital work of helping parents across the UK to get into work, and stay in work. If you would like to speak to our team about working with Employers For Childcare – whether that’s using us as your Childcare Voucher provider, or offering an advice session to your staff – call us on 028 8267 8200 or email hello@employersforchildcare.org. We would love to hear from you.”
