Important Information from Employers For Childcare

At Employers For Childcare, we understand that this is an uncertain time for parents, childcare providers and employers in relation to the impact of Coronavirus.

We would like to provide reassurance that we have measures in place to ensure that Childcare Vouchers will continue to be processed during this time.

In the meantime, please contact our Family Benefits Advice Service if you would like guidance on:

  • Benefits entitlements should you become ill or be required to self-isolate
  • How employers can support their staff, for example, offering annual leave, unpaid leave or working from home arrangements should employees be unable to come to work.

You can contact the team Monday to Friday 8am to 5pm on Freephone 0800 028 3008.

At present, schools and childcare settings in the UK, including Northern Ireland, have not been required to close. We will continue to monitor this situation and provide updates as necessary.

We will do all we can to provide continuity of service, will be taking direction from government and health officials, and have contingency plans in place to minimise as much as possible any impact on our services.
