Help with childcare costs

The government is introducing new ways to help parents with childcare costs. Whether you have toddlers or teens, you could get support.  Please see Childcare Choices website for more information.

How care to learn can help you

If you are a young parent, care to learn can help pay for your childcare and related travel costs while you're learning.

The subject or course you take is entirely up to you. For example, you can choose whether you want to take a qualification or not, and whether you want to learn at a college or through work.

If you're interested in applying for care to learn, the next step is to check whether you're eligible.

If you have any further questions or you'd like some help with your application, you can contact:
