A FREE Tax-Free Childcare webinar for local authority/council officers, partners, and family-facing professionals

15 March 2022 – 10:00-11:30





HMRC has asked Hempsall’s to deliver this 90-minute Zoom webinar.  It will be useful for local authorities/councils and family-facing professionals across England, Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales.

You are invited if you are a health visitor, social worker, housing officer, or work in children’s centres, early help, job centres, schools, or if you are someone else who works with families across the public, private and voluntary sectors.

The webinar is designed to share up-to-date information and to raise awareness of Tax-Free Childcare (TFC) and increase understanding of it.

Hempsall’s will be providing a useful overview of TFC and how it could better benefit children and families.  They also want to help and equip attendees with ideas and tools that can motivate parents to sign up and use TFC to pay for childcare, out of school and holiday activities.  Helping families and children and the provider in turn.

The webinar will consider:

  • Information, myth busting and growing awareness/understanding of TFC to support clear information sharing.

  • Actions that can support parent and provider sign-up.
