Parental Support is additional funding available to students with eligible dependent children. This will replace Child Dependants Allowance (CDA)  for academic years starting on or after 1st September 2020.

In order to apply you must meet the general eligibility criteria for the NHS Learning Support Fund, and have parental responsibility for a child who is under 15 years of age, or under 17 years on this date if the child is registered with special educational needs.

You must also apply, and be eligible for, the Training Grant in order to receive Parental Support.

You will need to apply for Parental Support each academic year and submit your application and supporting evidence within nine months from the start of your academic year (or within nine months of the date you gained parental responsibility if this is later).

Further information can be found on our website.
