Aged 20+ - Childcare fund

As part of the financial support for students, we may be able to help with the cost of childcare required while the student attends their course.

Who can receive it?

Students who are 20 years of age or above at the start of their course who:

  • are studying on a full-time course or on an eligible part-time programme
  • are the main carer for the child
  • have an annual household income below £29,000.

To qualify for help with childcare funding

  • Your childcare provider must be OFSTED registered.
  • You must be applying for childcare support for a maximum of two children between 0-5 years of age on 31 August 2021.
  • You must be the main carer for the child.
  • If your child is eligible for 15 or 30 hours per week free early education, these must be used to cover your required sessions: you may then apply for additional cover, if required.
  • If your application is approved, payments will be made directly to the childcare provider on a monthly basis by BACS payment only.
