Changes to support for Universal Credit claimants, moving into work, who have upfront childcare

From 25 October, eligible parents who face a barrier to starting work due to upfront childcare costs can access a non-repayable grant to help them move into employment.  Payment for their upfront childcare costs will be made directly to their childcare provider

This is complex, but a very welcome development for those families who will be eligible, any queries should be directed to Employers for Childcare
