Childcare Voucher Scheme (Operated by Computershare)

Please note that this scheme is no longer open to new applicants.

Computershare Childcare Vouchers can be used for registered childcare facilities such as non-University nursery fees, before and after school clubs, holiday play schemes, child-minders, nannies and crèche facilities including swimming pools, gyms and supermarkets.

The University offers this scheme to eligible staff as an opportunity to save tax and national insurance on childcare costs.

The conditions which apply to this scheme are:

  • Vouchers can be used for children up to the age of 16. Children are cared for in registered childcare setting (includes nannies etc)
  • Parents must have a contract of employment with the University or one of its colleges.
  • In order for working parents to stay eligible for childcare vouchers, a childcare voucher must be ordered at least once in a rolling 12-month period.

Benefits of Childcare Voucher Scheme

For those who are already members of the scheme, up to £243 per month can be deducted from your salary and paid directly to your childcare provider. You will save money by not paying tax or national insurance on this amount. If both parents work for the University, both of you can claim.
