Childcare Grant

    • Thread Starter


    So I am due to start my course at Uni on Monday. Student Finance have now informed me that apparently even with extremely low household income, and two children, that I do not qualify for any amount within the childcare grant. I wondered if anybody could help inform me what 'Qualifies' you for this grant. I have spoken to three people who have all told me different things, SFE have been so unhelpful and have caused many tears and stress and nobody seems able to help me!

    Also has anybody previously appealed the decision and had a positive outcome?

    Also, should every parent be entitled to Parent Learning Allowance? Because Ive been told that without paying Childcare I am not entitled to PLA?

    Many Thanks Charlie
