Changes to Childcare Vouchers

Are you prepared for the changes to Childcare Vouchers? In early 2017, the Government is planning to start rolling out Tax-Free Childcare, a new initiative for working parents which will soon replace the current Childcare Voucher Scheme.

If you sign up for Childcare Vouchers before April 2018 you can remain on the scheme, and will be able to choose which is more cost-effective for you and your family.
If you are not currently taking Childcare Vouchers, you should consider joining now to have the choice later when the changes occur. Click Here for more information

Families' Activity Breaks (FAB)

What is FAB?

Families’ Activity Breaks (FAB) is a non-public funded, tri Service charitable initiative, providing fun and challenging activity camps around the UK for bereaved Military families.
Families’ Activity Breaks

If your child is aged up to 19 years old and has suffered the loss of a loved one who was serving in the Armed Forces, then you may be eligible for a FAB camp. The holidays offer an adventure for all the family and a welcome break to meet and socialise with others who have experienced a similar loss. A loved one can mean a parent, a step parent, or a child’s legal guardian, carer or sibling.

Full details of 2017 FAB dates are at
