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 cvpa@wacomms.co.uk, with the subject line Childcare Vouchers – my story. Your experience can be anonymised if you prefer.

Thanks for your ongoing support.
