Children and young people fund 2018/2019

We are now inviting applications to the Children and Young People Fund 2018/2019.

We are looking for applications from new and existing establishments that support children, young people and/or families and can demonstrate an integrated approach to child and/or youth care via the provision of quality, affordable and accessible services which help families address their work/life balance.

Settings are reminded that they must be registered with the CSSIW, affiliated to a partner organisation and that they should research the Childcare Sufficiency Assessment as panel decisions will be based around this detail.

About the fund
