Fact file: How the Government’s childcare plan could change things for families

In the Media | May 12, 2015

The Federal Government has announced that there will be changes to the way childcare payments are determined in the 2015 budget.

Social Services Minister Scott Morrison said the changes will more strongly tie childcare payments to workforce participation

“What has been guiding us on childcare has been the objective of workforce participation. It’s not a welfare payment. It’s not an income support payment or anything like that. It is there to encourage people to be in work, stay in work, so families can have choices,” he said.
