Support Provided by the University

Other University Policies

There are a number of other relevant policies, which you may refer to in the Worklife Balance section of this web site - these are:

Childcare Vouchers

You can apply for childcare vouchers to help cover the costs of childcare – ranging from nursery fees to au pairs – which are non-taxable and exempt from National Insurance contributions. Vouchers are provided to University staff by Edendred. If you wish to apply for vouchers visit or call 0800 247 12333. When ordering vouchers online you need to quote UNIV9241.

Nursery Scheme

You can opt to join our Nursery Tax Scheme (certain conditions apply) which is a form of salary sacrifice reducing the cost of childcare to parents using the University Day Nursery, Playcentre Day Care, Playscheme or TLC to qualify. The monthly limit on vouchers does not apply to the Nursery Tax Scheme. If you would like more information on the Nursery Tax scheme please contact the Finance Department, tel: 0115 846 7191.
