About the funding
Childcare inclusion funding is available to support disabled children or those with special needs to attend Ofsted-registered childcare and childcare run by schools.
The fund is intended to provide for changes to the childcare provision which will make it possible for the child to access the service. This might include:
- changes to the building
- specialist equipment
- training for staff
- more staff time or a member of staff
Parents must pay the fee for attending the childcare.
For 2023 holiday playschemes and activities, including those funded through the Holiday Activities and Food (HAF programme), read the information below for parents and childcare providers:
