    Anyone get help with childcare costs?

    My partner was looking into going out and working, I currently work full time (minimum wage ). Was wondering if anyone with kids was in the same boat and could advise on any form of help I could get to pay for an out of school club/registered childminder.

    The whole system is so complicated to me.

    we get no childcare costs hardly any child tax credits and no working tax credits - all because i work full time and my wife works part time to keep our heads above water - yet all the lazy mofo's out there that have never done a days work get more than we do put together on benefits... no justice !

    i agree, im due back from maternity leave in 5weeks and if i was to go back full time and put my daughter in child care there would be no point in me working with the cost of it, my partner works full time aswel, we cant afford for me not work so we are both having to change shifts so we can look after her ourselfs, which is what i would rather do anyway, but it means me and my partner will only see each other in passing now. we dont get much child tax credits and get no working tax credit.

    When both of us were working, we were getting our child care, and some more paid each week. I suppose it depends on your child care costs and your income/hours etc.

    If you didn't go back to work wouldn't you get tax credits then.

    Seems a lot of people who have kids are better off not going back to work.

    we wouldnt get any help with childcare, and as our family all work we are stuck for childcare!
    My husband works during the day approx 8am - 4pm (flexi-time), and I work evenings, 5-10. Totally crap as we never get to see each other, but only way we can do it!
    Although my son is in full time school, come school holidays no-one can look after him as my work do not care and wont be flexible with my shifts.

    Would doing something like we do and avoiding paying for childcare not be more beneficial
