Tax free childcare is a scheme to help working parents pay for childcare.

For every £8 a parent pays, the government will pay an extra £2 towards their childcare costs up to £2,000 per child, per year or £4,000 for children who are disabled. Tax-free childcare will be available for children up to the age of 12 or 17 for disabled children.
