Childcare Support

The College student advice and guidance team can provide help for parents.

This includes information about funding for external childcare provision, or help to find a suitable childcare place.

Care to Learn – Under 20s
If you are under 20, you may be entitled to up to £160 funding (per child per week) for childcare through the “Care to Learn” scheme. For further information visit www.direct.gov.uk/caretolearn

Childcare Fund – Over 20s
The Discretionary Learner Support Fund can help students with low incomes towards the cost of Ofsted registered childcare; however, funding is limited. Please apply early (e.g. when you submit your application to college – please do not wait until enrolment). Please ask for more information on applying at your Campus Student Advice Hub.
