Childcare Voucher Providers Association remains committed to delivering childcare vouchers for existing users


The Childcare Voucher Providers Association (CVPA) notes today’s Supreme Court judgement in Edenred (UK Group) Ltd v HM Treasury & Ors.


Speaking in reaction to the Supreme Court’s judgement, CVPA spokesperson Simon Darby said:


“Support towards childcare costs is vital for working parents.


The Childcare Voucher Providers Association (CVPA) brought about the case in order to ensure fairness in government procurement. The CVPA felt it had legitimate concerns about how the Government decided to deliver its new Tax-free Childcare scheme and the effect this would have on parents trying to access childcare support.


The CVPA remains committed to working with HM Treasury, HMRC and NS&I to ensure the successful implementation of the new Tax-free Childcare scheme for parents.


During the transition to Tax-free Childcare, CVPA members will continue to provide support to parents using the current childcare vouchers scheme.


Voucher providers are well-positioned to play an active role in raising awareness of the upcoming changes and to ensure that parents have the information they need to get the support they deserve.””
