Atos to administer new childcare scheme

It’s been announced that Atos will administer the pay-outs under the Government’s new childcare scheme for working families. Ministers announced earlier in the week that households with two working parents could benefit by up to £2,000 per year per child under the new programme.  National Savings and Investments, which will provide the programme, has Atos as a partner. However, the organisation has confirmed that Atos would not be involved in eligibility checks.
