The National Lottery Community Fund - People and Places
Connecting and Supporting Out of School Childcare Clubs and Communities
Clybiau Plant Cymru Kids’ Clubs is delighted to announce that we have been awarded a grant from the National Lottery Community Fund to support Out of School Childcare Clubs and Communities for a 3-year period.
The project will support:
Better quality play and care within Out of School Childcare Clubs through upskilling Playworkers and Managers.
Better access to care and play provision, with Clubs registered with Government initiatives that improve affordability.
More sustainable, well goverened childcare that will provide continuity of care for children.
What changes we will we make:
An increased awareness throughout the community of good governance and the benefits of registering with CIW, HMRC and current Government Initiatives.
Empower the community to reflect on current business practice, including good governance, registration, business skills and quality.
Communities will be able to access quality, affordable, sustainable Out of School Childcare with robust structures and management.
Playworkers, managers and committee volunteers feel better connected within their community, drawing on and building their collective strengths.
The project is:
People led– shaped by what Clubs have told us.
Connected– we work with many partners representing the voice of The Out of School Childcare sector, signpost to other sources of support such as ACAS, HMRC, ICO, CVCs and Environmental Health to ensure that Clubs are provided with accurate advice from the relevant experts.
Strengths based– building on the strengths, passion and motivation of the Clubs.
Jane O’Toole, Chief Executive Officer of Clybiau Plant Cymru Kids’ Clubs said:
“We would like to thank the National Lottery Community Fund for the grant award and of course thanks must go to the public who play the Lottery each week, without whom this funding and thus the project would not be possible.
Clybiau Plant Cymru Kids’ Clubs look forward to working with the Out of School Childcare Clubs in areas across Wales. Through this project we seek to support them with face to face visits and business skills, helping to improve the quality of play and care within Out of School Childcare Clubs through upskilling Playworkers and Managers, giving better access to care and play provision, with Clubs registered with Government initiatives that improve affordability and an overall more sustainable, well governed childcare that will provide continuity of care for children.”
