Childcare Assistance Fund (CAF) 2022/2023.
What is the Childcare Assistance Fund?
It is funding designed to support students who are parents with childcare expenses using the childcare services at our on-campus creche while studying at our Tallaght campus.
The students are generally from socio-economically disadvantaged backgrounds. The funding will be targeted to support full or part-time students who are lone parents as per the guidelines of the overall Student Assistance Funding as published by the Higher Education Authority.
