Childcare vouchers: important changes

Members and potential members of the University's childcare voucher scheme are reminded of important and imminent changes.

Edenred is replacing Sodexo as the University’s childcare voucher provider from July 2015. This will not affect the value of childcare vouchers that parents currently receive.

Parents who wish to continue receiving childcare vouchers from July, or parents who want to sign up for vouchers for the first time, must register with Edenred before 30 June 2015.

Sign up now

All employer-provided childcare voucher schemes will be closed to new members from the autumn of 2015, when the government introduces the new Tax-Free Childcare system, and so parents who wish to use the University’s scheme must sign up with Edenred now.

Registration details

  • The University's Scheme ID is UNIV3815.
  • You will need to enter your employee/payroll number (available on your payslip or staff card) and some personal details.
  • It is recommended that you provide an email address, as you will receive a confirmation email with further guidance on your online account and how to pay your childcare provider.

If you wish to join but are unable to do so via the internet please telephone the Edenred Helpdesk on 0800 247 1244 quoting the Scheme ID above. If you have any questions please email HR Business Systems.
