To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer, what financial support is available to parents of a child over the age of 11 to help with their childcare costs, given that this is the upper limit for Tax-Free Childcare, and where they are no longer able to access Childcare Vouchers.
This Government is committed to supporting families and we will be spending almost £6 billion in 2019/20 on childcare support – more than ever before.
There is a range of financial support with the cost of childcare available to parents with children over the age of 11, including:
Support with 20% of childcare costs for disabled children up to the age of 16 under Tax-Free Childcare.
Support of up to 85% of childcare costs for children under 15 whose parents are full time Higher Education students under the Childcare Grant in England.
