Family Friendly Workplace

We are committed to being a family friendly workplace. Below are a list of options available for parents.

Corporate Childcare Vouchers

Employer-Supported Childcare

Childcare Vouchers are an extremely flexible way to save money on the cost of your childcare and make it easier for you to afford quality childcare of your choosing.  Liverpool Hope’s Childcare Voucher Scheme will be available through Edenred Childcare Voucher Scheme from March 2017. This scheme is open to new entrants (subject to eligibility) until October 2018.

If you wish to join the above scheme, please contact Personnel on 0151 291 3189 for the Scheme ID number. 

Tax-Free Childcare 

Tax-free Childcare was launched by the Government in early 2017. You are advised to consider, whether you are eligible for either scheme and which one is most appropriate for your needs. This can be dependent upon your family and work commitments, as well as your childcare costs and income. This scheme will be rolled out gradually to families, with parents of the youngest children able to apply first. Further information can be obtained by clicking on the following links:

Opportunities to Request Flexible Working 

Hope staff who are parents of children under the age of sixteen (or 18 if the child is disabled) or who are caring or expect to be caring for an adult (i.e. a person aged 18 years or over) have the right to make a request to work flexibly and for Liverpool Hope to seriously consider that request.

Staff need to meet certain criteria in order to make a request to work flexibly, details of which can be found here Flexible Working Policy.
