  • can you give some more information about it?

    I have a few friends who use this service and i dont think they know about it.




  • I am with you i was really annoyed about this last week I still am as i had 60 euro to do me for the week I am skint my children have had to do with sparse lunches this week. I could not believe how ignorant whoever is responsible for this 2 weeks warning and I would not be ranting. Sending an email on the 29th to say collect payment which I might add covers half the childcare cost not full amount. Go out to collect payment to be greeted with sorry college audit means no more childcare wtf like. No warning nothing. I'm not letting this sit by the way i have voiced my disgust in this as it is I will not be able to stay in college me and my 2 children cannot live on 60 euro a week. It is only people getting the grant who has got the cut by the way which did make up my other half of childcare, bills and course materials. Who would be best to contact about this highland radio politicians. I dont think students should accept this treatment especially when the college cannot even provide a creche for us.
