The Family Information Service is undertaking a consultation on the Childcare Sufficiency Assessment 2017-2021. This consultation will close on 30th April 2017.
Childcare is an issue that affects many people, especiallyparents, and those who look after children for family or friends. This consultation offers people the opportunity to read a draft report on childcare sufficiency and then give their opinions on how plans could be improved. Responses to the consultation are welcomed from stakeholders and members of the public who have an opinion on the matter.
Under the Childcare Act 2006, it is a statutory duty that County Councils undertake a Childcare Sufficiency Assessment (CSA). The Act places a duty on County Councils in Wales "to secure, as far as is reasonably practical, sufficient childcare to meet the requirements of parents in their area who require childcare in order to train, to work or to prepare for work."
The report identifies gaps and makes recommendations that will, where ereasonably practical, meet the needs of parents so that the Council can fulfil the childcare sufficiency duty as set out in the Childcare Act.
