Flexible Childcare Assistance
If you’re a sole parent, Flexible Childcare Assistance can help you get on your feet when you move into work. It helps towards childcare costs if childcare programmes aren’t operating for some of your work hours.
Who can get it
You may be eligible for Flexible Childcare Assistance if you’re:
- a sole parent getting Sole Parent Support or Jobseeker Support, and
- cancelling your benefit because you’re starting a job or increasing your hours, and
- working at least three hours a week outside the times OSCAR and ECE programmes are operating
