Childcare Vouchers are a government work life balance scheme supported by HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC). The scheme is available to eligible working parents who pay for registered childcare for children up to 16 years old.
The University offers childcare vouchers through an external provider, and the scheme operates under a salary sacrifice arrangement. This means that members of staff give up the right to directly receive a part of their salary and receive a non-cash benefit that will not be subject to tax and national insurance.
Further information is available from a dedicated section on the Staff Counselling and Wellbeing Service’s website.
