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. The pilot will run for six months (13 September 2017–15 March 2018) and, if successful, it is hoped a permanent source of funds will be established.
