Childcare Voucher Scheme / Tax-Free Childcare

Tax-Free Childcare

New staff joining the University, and existing staff who are not already a member of the University Childcare Voucher Scheme, may be eligible for the government's Tax-Free Childcare.  For eligibility criteria and more information, see

Childcare Voucher Scheme

The government closed all workplace-based Childcare Voucher Schemes to new applicants with effect from 4 October 2018, and replaced them with Tax-Free Childcare (see above). However, the University's Childcare Voucher Scheme continues to operate for employees who were in the Scheme before it was closed and who continue to meet the eligibility criteria.  The University Childcare Voucher Scheme Guide (PDF, 203kB) applies to existing members.
