Childcare Voucher Scheme

With effect from 4 October 2018, all childcare voucher schemes closed to new applicants as a result of the introduction of the Government’s new Tax-Free Childcare Scheme.
 
The University’s Childcare Voucher Scheme remains open to existing members however you cannot be a member of both the University and the Government scheme.
 
If you decide to leave the University’s Childcare Voucher Scheme after 4 October 2018, you will not be able to re-join the scheme. If you choose to leave the University’s Childcare Voucher Scheme you can continue to use any vouchers you already have in your account, including to make a joint payment for childcare with Tax-Free Childcare.  There is no deadline for using your vouchers. It should be noted that no refund of vouchers will be made.   
 
If you have any questions please contact Joanne McRae: joanne.mcrae@strath.ac.uk
