Family friendly

The Nuffield Department of Clinical Neurosciences recognises that our staff and students have lives outside of work, and that for many, it can be a real struggle to balance the two. However, we continue to develop family-friendly working initiatives, so that you can find your own work-life balance.

Carers’ Career Fund

The NDCN Carers’ Career Fund is open to all academic, research, professional, support staff and students who have regular caring responsibilities, e.g. for child, parent, partner, or a close relative. Individuals can apply for up to £250 to help offset the costs of paying for care above and beyond their normal arrangements when attending events relating to their professional development. 

For further information, see the application form with guidance notes on our Staff Development intranet pages or contact Stacie Allan ( 

Flexible Working

Our Department operates a variety of flexible working policies in line with the University. This includes family leave and the option to work part-time or from home
