The University Childcare Support Fund (formerly The University 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 information sheet below.

Applications are accepted throughout the 2018/19 academic year but it’s anticipated that most of the available funding will be distributed by Easter Term 2019. 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.
