What is NHS Childcare Allowance?
The NHS Bursary Childcare Allowance (CCA) is available to students in receipt of an NHS Bursary to enable them to apply for extra help towards any registered childcare costs they may incur whilst training.
Am I eligible?
To be eligible the childcare you use must be provided by a registered or approved childcare provider, and the child must be aged 15 or under, (or aged 17 or under if the child has learning difficulties or is registered as having special educational needs), on the 1st day of the academic year.
However, this is an income assessed allowance and the final amount awarded will depend on your circumstances and the income available to you and your family. Therefore, not all students who apply for Childcare Allowance will be entitled to receive it.
All NHS Bursary funded students who have dependent children may apply for the allowance, except those who have applied for, or who are only entitled to, a fees only award.
