Childcare scheme gets six-month reprieve

14 March, 2018 - by Catherine Kelly


Responding to the decision to delay the scrapping of childcare vouchers for six months Sinn Féin spokesperson for children and young people Catherine Kelly MLA said:

“Childcare vouchers help many working parents with the often exorbitant costs of childcare so I welcome the six month extension.

 “However, it is only a temporary reprieve. 

 "The extension period should be used to develop a longer term solution to the need for accessible and affordable childcare."
