Childcare Support

Childcare Choices

Any employees looking for support with their childcare costs will now need to join the Tax Free Childcare scheme.  Further information and a calculator, to help parents understand what government help they might be entitled to, can be found on the Childcare Choices website - 

More information on this and details of support available through the Trust can be found using the links at the bottom of the page.

The Trust also has its own nursery on site at the Freeman Hospital.  More information on Free Spirits Nursery can be found at
