Employers for Childcare One to One Advice Clinics


13/11/2017 - 13/11/2017


9:30AM - 5:00PM


Committee Room F, Level 2 Admin Building

The Diversity and Inclusion Unit in conjunction with the Salaries office and Employers for Childcare have arranged One to One Advice Clinics for staff in relation to Childcare schemes available.

The clinics will be held in Committee Room F, Level 2 Admin Building on Tuesday 7th November and Monday 13th November.

These clinics are for both staff currently using Childcare Vouchers and those not currently availing of the scheme but who may wish to in the future.  Dependant on personal circumstances some people will be better off with the new Tax free Childcare Scheme and some should remain with the current Childcare Vouchers Scheme.  The current childcare voucher scheme will close to new entrants in April 2018.

Staff can discuss their own personal circumstances with a representative from Employers for Childcare to establish which scheme is best suited to them.  Please bring the following information to the session.

  1. P60 income for previous tax year
  2. Estimated earnings and weekly working hours for this tax year
  3. Childcare costs
  4. Any disability or sickness benefits in payment
  5. Housing costs including rates
  6. Details of Maternity Leave and Pay
  7. Immigration status if applicable

Please click on the link below to book a suitable time.  If you require a quick comparison of the two schemes please book one time slot of 15 minutes.  If your situation is complex and/or you wish to include tax credit calculations please book a double time slot of 30 mins (2x 15 minutes).

These clinics are proving to be very popular and there are only a small number of spaces left.  If you are unable to book a slot please email and your name will be held on a waiting list should a space become available.  Alternatively you can contact Employers for Childcare Family Benefits Advice Service on 0800 028 3008 and the same comparisons can be done over the telephone.  Please remember to have all the information above to hand when you call.

You can watch a video about the upcoming changes here.



If you require further information or need to cancel your session please contact Leeann Matchett, Diversity and Inclusion Unit on 02890 973039.
