Harrow families to benefit from boosted Universal Credit childcare payments

Starting this week, working parents and families in Harrow on Universal Credit will receive higher childcare payments.

The boost allows for up to £951 per month for one child and £1,630 for two or more children.

In addition, parents entering work or increasing their hours will receive support for the first month’s childcare costs.

The Childcare Choices website provides information on available support, and tax breaks and grants are also offered to make childcare more affordable for all families in Harrow.

For all families in Harrow there are a range of tax breaks and grants to help make childcare more affordable. You can usually use them for care like registered childminders, nannies, nurseries, and holiday clubs.

These measures aim to ease the financial burden on parents and promote a better work-life balance.
