The government has introduced new measures to support children with SEND:
EY SEND Funding Panel
The new SEND funding application process for the Autumn term is now open
All local authorities are required to establish a SEND inclusion fund for 2, 3 and 4-year-olds with SEND whose parents or carers are taking up the free entitlement. The purpose of the fund is to support local authorities to work with providers to address the needs of individual children.
Disability Access Fund for 3 and 4-year-olds
The Disability Access Fund (DAF) is available to support children with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) in their childcare setting. Childcare providers can receive £615 per year for every child who meets the eligibility criteria.
