Lone Parent Childcare Grant


If you are a full-time student and a lone parent, you are eligible to apply for a payment of up to £1,305 per year from the Childcare Funds to assist with formal childcare costs. To be eligible you must have taken out your full entitlement of all other available support e.g. student loan. Any childcare costs rising above this amount can be met from the Childcare Discretionary Fund, if you are a lone parent.

Students who are not lone parents can have childcare costs funded through the Childcare Discretionary Fund.
