Tax Free Childcare

Latest update 


Following the Government's introduction of Tax Free Childcare, the University is no longer able to accept new applications for Childcare Vouchers. Further information on the Tax Free Childcare Scheme can be found at - Tax Free Childcare is not administrated by the University.

Information for existing members of the Childcare Voucher Scheme

If you are currently receiving childcare vouchers on a monthly basis and are happy to continue receiving them, you do not need to do anything.

If you have had a break from receiving vouchers of longer than 52 weeks then you will lose your right to participate in the scheme.

During the course of the scheme's operation, you may experience a "lifestyle change", which is broadly defined as any significant change in your employment situation or childcare requirements. Should this occur and you need to leave the scheme or significantly increase or reduce your voucher amount, you should make the necessary adjustments to your account by the 1st of the month.

This constitutes a further contractual change to your terms and conditions of employment, and your remuneration package will be restructured accordingly.

Please note that on leaving the scheme, no refunds will be given on accrued vouchers, except in exceptional circumstances.
