Parents / Carers:
Please contact the care-4 helpline on 0344 800 1444 or email, providing your name and, where applicable, your care-4 account number.

If you are a parent, wishing to join the scheme for the first time, we are sorry but care-4 is now closed to new joiners in line with the Government’s roll out of Tax Free Childcare.

If you are an existing company scheme administrator, please log in to access the client admin site to support you on all aspects of the scheme.

Thinking of switching to care-4?
If you are an employer that offers childcare vouchers to your employees already and you are looking for a new provider, or you are a participant of childcare vouchers with another provider and would like your employer to have more information about the scheme, please complete the form below.

As you know, care-4, as part of the employer supported legislation, closed to new entrants on 4th October 2018. Since its closure, the CVPA have been overwhelmed with messages from parents and employers alike, many of whom have missed out on the vital support offered through these schemes.

That’s why today, the CVPA have launched a survey to understand the impact the closure has had on parents, employers, and childcare providers – so it would be great if the CVPA can hear your views and put them forward to government.  

To take part, click on the survey link that applies to you:- Employer, Parent (current user), Parent (not able to join/rejoin), Carer – it will take less than 5 minutes to complete and all responses will be kept anonymous.

If the scheme’s closure has affected you and you’d be willing to share your experience as a case study, you can get in touch with the CVPA by emailing, with the subject line Childcare Vouchers – my story. Your experience can be anonymised if you prefer.

Thanks for your ongoing support.

The care-4 Team
