Less than 1.7% of the total number of registered parents were affected by this issue.

Of the total 6,537 payments affected, 879 of these were payments made from parents’ TFC accounts to Childcare Providers.

NS&I data for payments to each, specific parents or the number of Childcare Providers affected is not readily available and could be provided only at disproportionate cost.
