Birmingham Parent Survey regarding Tax-Free Childcare

Closed 24 Jun 2022

Opened 20 May 2022


Thank you for your interest in this online survey. This survey is being carried out by Birmingham City Council.

Why are you doing a survey?

We would like to hear about your understanding and views regarding the Tax Free Childcare scheme rolled out by HMRC in 2017.   

We hope that this survey will help to improve access to childcare and support other families in Birmingham.

Why your views matter

What are the questions about?

It should take you about 10 minutes. We ask about the type of childcare setting you use, your understanding, opinions and experiences of the Tax Free Childcare Scheme, whether or not you have used or heard of the scheme.

In addition, we will also ask some questions about you as a parent/carer e.g. the area of Birmingham where you live, ethnicity etc so that we can make comparisons.

How will the survey be used?

We will write a report based on people’s answers. We will not publish your individual survey responses or share them with anyone outside the survey team.

The report will be published by Birmingham City Council in Summer 2022.

How will my data be protected?

This survey is anonymous and no names will be used in any reporting.

You will not be able to withdraw your answers once you have filled out the survey, because we will not be able to tell which answers are yours.

If you have any questions or would like more information about this research, please contact Birmingham City Council :
