Leicestershire County Council switches childcare voucher providers

Exclusive: Leicestershire County Council has switched childcare voucher providers.

The council switched to Kiddivouchers from RSM Tenon after the latter provider discontinued its childcare services.

Davendra Rana, benefits coordinator at Leicestershire County Council, said: “We have received good feedback so far. Once an employees’ payment has come out they will receive a text message. Employees really appreciate the SMS text service.”

The council sent out letters to all employees in the scheme, and published an intranet news item. It employs 26,000 staff.
