MAPS Caring Fund - relaunched!
1 December 2022
The MAPS Caring fund has relaunched for 2022 - 2023 providing funds for those with caring responsibilities.
As part of the MAPS Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Strategic Plan for the period 2019 - 2022, the faculty is relaunching the MAPS Caring Fund. The aim of this fund is to enable all staff (academics, researchers, teaching fellows, professional services staff, technical staff) and PhD students with caring responsibilities to attend meetings, conferences, workshops and work events outside normal working patterns. At present, we are not able to consider teaching activities at UCL within timetabled hours as expecctions to a working pattern.
The Faculty has allocated £5,000 per annum and applications will be considered throughout the year until the fund is exhausted. Claims up to £500 will be considered per person, per year. The fund can cover any caring responsibility until the 31st July 2023. Any caring responsbility past this date will be able to apply for the next 2023-2024 Caring Fund.
To apply, please read through the guidelines for the Caring Fund, attached below as a PDF document and then submit the application form, attached below as a word document, to email@example.com.
If you have any questions, please contact the team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Who can apply?
You need to either be a member of staff (academics, researchers, teaching fellows, professional services staff, technical staff) and PhD students within the MAPS Faculty. Childcare or caring responsibility costs may only be claimed in association with work activities undertaken outside of normal working patterns (e.g., childcare or eldercare costs while the primary carer attends a conference, training or meeting requiring them to work outside usual contracted hours).
You must submit the application form to email@example.com at least three weeks before the event.
