Help with travel and childcare

The cost of travel and childcare needn't stop you getting a job.

Help with travel

A Jobcentre Plus Travel Discount Card lets you travel at reduce rates on c2c rail, in London and elsewhere when looking for work.

Cardholders can get half-price travel on many ticket types.

You need to go to your local Jobcentre Plus to apply for a Jobcentre Plus Travel Discount Card.

Contact Jobcentre Plus for full details of the scheme.

We do not provide discount cards, and are unable to help with enquiries.

Help with childcare

Government schemes can help you with childcare costs.

Whether you have toddlers or teens, you could get support.

To find out how you could get up to £2,000 towards childcare go to the government's Childcare Choices website.
