Welsh Government Childcare Provider Grant
[24/08/2020]

Following our email of last week, we are now able to share the links to the Childcare Provider Grant. We have worked with Welsh Government to develop the grant criteria and terms and conditions and whilst it does not meet every provider’s needs we are happy to support all Out of School Childcare Clubs to examine the criteria and if eligible to submit an application to the fund.

Please see the link where you can check your eligibility:

Clybiau Plant Cymru Kids’ Clubs have developed some frequently asked questions in relation to the criteria of the grant, below you will find three important points where discretion will be taken:

  • Business must be, or must undertake to become within 12 months, registered as a company limited by guarantee, a private limited company, Community Interest Company or a Charitable Incorporated Organisation. (Cwlwm partners are able to discuss this with you if you are unsure). If you are a childminder and are registered with HMRC as a sole trader then you are exempt from this requirement;
  • An Out of School Childcare club working as a sole trader may not have been able to access any other funding and so are NOT expected to become a company limited by guarantee or Ltd. Thus, they can act as a childminder for this purpose and be eligible and apply in the normal way.
  • Where the business is temporarily closed, the business must undertake to fully re-open on, or before 14; September 2020; or if based on school premises, as soon as the school allows
  • Some Out of School Childcare Clubs are based in Community Centres, etc. which may not be able to reopen by the 14/9 due to landlord decisions. This is similar to those settings on school sites being unable to open due to local decisions. Thus, if proof is provided of the landlord’s closure of the premises, they can be eligible for the funding.
  • If you are an Unregistered setting you are able to submit registration and when registration is received, apply for the grant prior to 31st October.  CIW are committing to process registrations with alacrity and in some instances, where applications are fully complete have turned them around within a very short timescale.
  • Clybiau Plant Cymru Kids’ Clubs are able to support you to submit an application to register with CIW, through its People and Places, Connecting and Supporting Out of School Childcare Clubs and Communities project. Please contact us if you would like support.

Applications open on Monday 24th August and will close on 31st October, but there is likely to be high demand for funding and so we encourage Settings to look into their applications early. Support is available from your Childcare Business Development Officer – please contact us if you have any questions or require support:
