Child Care Vouchers

In 2008 The Scout Association received confirmation from HM Government that Scouting is, by definition, not considered “child care” and so elements of the Children’s Act to not apply to The Scout Association. This includes registration with OFSTED as a childcare provider.

Subsequently, use of child care vouchers or gettting help paying for child care is not applicable to Scouting. See “Childcare you can get help paying for” on GOV.UK.
