Childcare bursaries

IDDconf 2019 will provide bursaries for childcare during the conference. For those bringing a partner or other carer to look after a child, IDDconf will provide up to £60 for travel costs. For those bringing children and booking childcare, IDDconf will provide up to £200 for childcare costs.


Delegates cannot claim both bursaries. We encourage delegates to claim from a grant or funding agency if that is possible, to demonstrate to funders the need for these subsidies.

IDDconf has a limited budget, and childcare subsidies will be allocated on a first-come first-served basis until that limit is reached.

Previous attendees have used accredited babysitting services in Ambleside, for which we can provide details, but IDDconf and LSHTM accept no responsibility for those companies.

Children and babies are welcome at IDDconf, but caregivers should please make regular efforts not to interrupt speakers during sessions. Children are the responsibility of parents/caregivers while on campus and at IDDconf. Parents should note that that there will be alcoholic beverages at the poster session.
