Funding announced to support the Childcare and Play Sector
We are delighted to share with you details of funding being made available by Welsh Government for the Childcare & Play Sector.
Covid-19 Reconstruction – Challenges and Priorities, published on 6 October 2020, provides details of a financial package which will help support the ‘everyday’/ foundational economy and focus efforts “on supporting those who have been most adversely affected by the Covid 19 crisis, including children and young people, women, those in low paid and insecure employment, BAME people and disabled people.”
As part of this package, £3.8m in revenue funding has been allocated to support the childcare and play sector, both in terms of recovery from the impact of Covid-19 and ongoing sustainability. The funding will help ensure that children have access to quality childcare and play provision and that families are supported with their childcare needs, enabling parents to work.
