Child­care scheme boost for par­ents

Evening Times - - NEWS -

AROUND 200,000 work­ing fam­i­lies in Scot­land will be el­i­gi­ble for up to £2000 of child­care sup­port per child ev­ery year, the Trea­sury has an­nounced.

Par­ents, in­clud­ing self-em­ployed peo­ple, can to­day ap­ply for tax-free child­care for chil­dren un­der 12, by vis­it­ing the web­site www.child­care­choices.gov.uk.

There they will be able to ac­cess a “child­care cal­cu­la­tor” which helps par­ents choose child­care sup­port.

The Trea­sury says the con­tri­bu­tion is worth up to £4000 for dis­abled chil­dren.
