Seminar helps employers support working parents

Business | Press | News

A special breakfast seminar has been arranged to make employers more aware of how they can help staff with childcare costs.

The Cambridgeshire Care & Education Partnership is working to offer free information and support to employers in Cambridgeshire, and advice and guidance to employers in the Peterborough area on a consultancy basis.

Employers can do many things to support working parents, such as implementing a Childcare Voucher Scheme, buying into a Childminder Network or contracting directly with local registered childcare. The scheme can be offered as a salary sacrifice, salary plus or as part of a flexible benefits package.

Working parents

The Government recognises the importance of quality, accessible childcare. In a bid to help make childcare more affordable for working parents, new legislation was introduced on 6 April 2005 offering capped relief on both tax and national insurance contributions for the employee and national insurance contributions for the employer.

To help employers better understand their options, the Cambridgeshire Care & Education Partnership are hosting a breakfast seminar at the Oliver Cromwell Hotel in March on Tuesday 24 May from 8.30am to 11.30am. Delegates will learn how they can support staff and discuss experiences with other employers. There will also be an open session for questions.

Speakers from the Inland Revenue will explain the new legislation and representatives from NW Brown Employee Benefits will talk about childcare vouchers.

The cost of the seminar is 20.00, which includes a continental breakfast. Places must be booked in advance.

This can be done by contacting 01954 273364 or by email: [email protected]
