The news the sector has been waiting for! Following several months of working with Welsh Government to demonstrate the case for sector specific funding, Clybiau Plant Cymru Kids’ Clubs welcomes the announcement to support Childcare Providers affected by COVID-19.
We will be running online webinars with information and question and answer sessions on this grant in September. BOOK at https://www.clybiauplantcymru.org/training-events.asp#order
Applications for the scheme will open on 24 August and the scheme will close on 31 October 2020.
The Childcare Provider Grant will offer dedicated funding for the childcare sector to help ensure more providers re-open as the schools return in September and is available to childcare settings who have been unable to access other business support schemes offered by the UK and Welsh Governments.
The scheme also aims to help make the childcare sector more resilient for the future by requiring unincorporated settings to register as a company limited by guarantee, a private limited company, a Community Interest Company or a Charitable Incorporated Organisation.
The scheme will be a one-off grant to help providers meet the additional financial burdens they have faced since March, with many settings experiencing a reduction in income whilst continuing to meet costs such as rent, utilities and unmet wage costs.
