Supporting in-family childcare arrangements

Comment 9th August 2010

Support mothers returning to work by allowing childcare vouchers to be used for family members providing childcare.  Allowing a Grandma to look after her grandchild whilst also enabling her to be in receipt of payment would keep both mother and grandparent earning whilst benefitting both parties and the child. Alternative might often be mother staying at home instead, claiming benefits as cost of sending child to nursery outweighs benefit of earning.

Why does this matter?

Enabling mothers to return to work, enabling children to be cared for by members of their family, enabling family members to help with childcare without losing out on earnings themselves.  Child being raised by family rather than nursery.
