Before completing any of the above grant applications, please check with your chosen childcare provider that they have registered their setting on our portal in order to enable processing of any approved grants. Please see the Childcare Development Grant Provider Registration Form here.


Childcare and Play Grant

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.
