With effect from 1 April, a child care voucher scheme for children up to the age of five years has been available to staff employed by the Commission. Under the scheme, staff receive vouchers to the value of £6 per day worked per family towards child care provision of their choosing.

The House also participates in the Westminster holiday play scheme, which is available to the children of hon. Members, their staff and staff employed by the Commission. This covers children aged between five and 12 years during school holidays.
