Ensure you are accessing all the financial support you are entitled to this Christmas

Last year, our team identified an average of £4,267 in financial support for families who we gave advice to, and with the impact of Covid-19 being felt by all – now is the time to ensure you are accessing all of the support your family may be entitled to.

While 2020 may not be the year for parties and large gatherings, the run up to Christmas will still be an expensive time for parents, with presents to buy and family meals to plan. And this year, many of us have seen our circumstances changed and our finances impacted, whether through furlough, a reduction in our hours at work or even redundancy.

At Employers For Childcare, we understand the struggle that many families experience right across the year to make ends meet, and we want to ensure that your family is aware of the financial support you are entitled to.

Last year, our team helped more than 8,000 families, completing over 5,000 calculations and identifying £12.6 million in financial support for them. According to one parent, “The advice I received helps me a lot to make the right decision about the benefits I am entitled to apply for.”

We also know just how busy this time of year can be, and adding to the ‘to do’ list may not be a top priority – but this is one item you can tick off easily, as we do everything for you. Simply give our Family Benefits Advice Service a call on 028 9267 8200 or email hello@employersforchildcare.org and one of our skilled advisors will be able to calculate exactly what support you may be entitled to. We provide advice and guidance on a wide range of support including Tax-Free Childcare, Universal Credit, Tax Credits and disability or social security benefits – including how these may be impacted if you are in receipt of support through one of the Government’s Covid-19 support schemes.

Our team looks forward to hearing from you and, in the meantime, from all of us at Employers For Childcare, we would like to wish you a safe and Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year when it comes (roll on 2021!)
