Childcare and Play Grant 2022 - 2023


Applications to the Childcare and Play Grant are considered from families who are on a low income (where household income including benefits is under £25,000), parents who wish to work or train, wish to access provision through the medium of Welsh and to support the well-being of children. Limited funds are available therefore we may not be able to fund all requests. Applications must be submitted by the parent/carer.

This grant funds up to £6 per week for Breakfast Club, £14 per week for Playgroup, £12 per week for After School Club and £30 per week for Holiday Club.

New applicants will be considered as and when received and payment can start from the date the grant is approved. Payment will be made directly to the childcare provider on a termly basis.

The Childcare Development Team will be carrying out random termly monitoring to ensure that you are still eligible for the grant and to collect feedback regarding your experience of the grant.  However, if in the meantime your circumstances change and you believe you are no longer eligible for the grant please contact us on 01352 703509 / 703504 or at childcaredevelopmentgrants@flintshire.gov.uk
