Childcare vouchers are provided using salary exchange. The University pays for childcare vouchers up to the value of £243 a month, and your pay is reduced by the same amount. This means you pay less in income tax and National Insurance contributions.

What can I use childcare vouchers for?

Childcare vouchers can be used to pay carers of children up to the age of 15, or 16 if your child is disabled.

You can also use childcare vouchers to pay for holiday clubs or play schemes during school holidays. All childcare must be 'registered' or 'approved'.
