Changes to childcare voucher schemes

The Fideliti Childcare Voucher Scheme is closing to all new entrants from 6th April 2018.

If you wish to join the Childcare Voucher scheme, you will need to register with Fideliti no later than the 11th March 2018. Please see the How to join Fideliti section below.

If you are registered in the Fideliti scheme, you will be able to remain in the schemes as long as:

  • you continue to make childcare voucher deductions (the Fidelitii scheme minimum is currently £10 per month)
  • as long as you remain with the same employer and
  • your employer continues to offer the scheme.

More information is available on the Fideliti website.

How to join Fideliti

You can register online via the Fideliti website 

  • click on the "Click to Login" button
  • scroll down to the "Register For Fideliti" section
  • click on the "Employee Registration" link

or call the Fideliti helpline on: 0800 288 8727. Please quote our Employer Scheme Reference UNI9778.

If you join the Fideliti childcare voucher scheme, you are able to take a portion of your salary as childcare vouchers.  These vouchers are not subject to tax and national insurance deductions.  This is referred to as a salary sacrifice scheme. 

Please note that by joining the scheme you are agreeing to a change in your terms and conditions of employment.

Vouchers are available to eligible staff who use Ofsted registered childcare providers for children from 0 - 15 years old, 16 if the child is disabled.

Once you have joined the scheme you have access to an online account, and can use an e-voucher to make payment to your registered childcare provider. You can also select auto-pay vouchers which enable you to specify a date and payment amount for automatic payments to your childcare provider each month.  You can choose to receive up to the current maximum amount (currently £243 or £124 of vouchers per month, depending on your tax bracket).

The Government have introduced the Tax-Free Childcare scheme (TFC) on 28th April 2017.
