This Government is committed to supporting families and we will be spending around £6 billion every year by 2019/20 on childcare support – more than ever before.

We expect awareness and take-up of Tax-Free Childcare to increase in line with OBR forecasts as we continue to increase communications promoting the offer, including the launch of a national marketing campaign in September 2018
