Childcare Relief Fund
The Childcare Relief Fund is a means-tested emergency childcare fund that can provide short-term assistance for up to six months. All full time matriculated students with dependent children in registered or approved childcare, who encounter unexpected circumstances leading to financial hardship are eligible to apply. Matriculated students with dependent children in registered or approved childcare studying a full-time course part-time because of disability are also eligible to apply. If a student applicant has a partner, the partner must either also be a student or must be working full-time in order for the application to be considered.
Home students are advised to apply first to the Access to Learning Fund for assistance with childcare provision costs. The maximum Childcare Relief Fund award is £2,000. Application forms are available from Student Funding Services, contactable at firstname.lastname@example.org.
