The Childcare Hardship Fund is open to registered home student parents. It is intended for students in exceptional, unforeseen financial difficulty and it offers limited financial assistance towards confirmed Ofsted-registered childcare costs.  There are a number of restrictions in place pertaining to the award; further details can be found in the Childcare Hardship Fund Information Sheet - below.

Applications are accepted throughout the 2017/18 academic year but it’s anticipated that most of the available funding will be distributed by Easter Term 2018.  The aim is to assess and respond to applications within six working weeks of receipt, although sometimes final decisions may depend on the provision of further information by applicants.

Information sheets/Application Forms can be picked up from the Childcare Office, GU, CUSU, and all colleges.
