SFL111 - Review Out of School Start up Grant

Closed 12 Dec 2012

Opened 18 Sep 2012


Outline of Proposal

Sure Start has funding available to support the development of new out of school childcare provision to meet the council’s duties under the Childcare Sufficiency Act. To ensure sufficient provision locally we do not need to stimulate supply and so the grant allocated can be reduced.

General Impact

Minimum demand is now placed on the budget and the council does not need a high level of expansion to meet its duties under the Childcare Sufficiency Duty (Childcare Act 2006).

Impact on Service Users   

This grant is to help set up new out of school childcare provision in areas where we do not have sufficient provision.  We currently have sufficient provision across the borough.

The indicative saving for this proposal is £2,000.

As the proposal will affect service users, we have undertaken an Equality Impact Assessment to identify likely or actual effects on people with protected characteristics. The Equality Impact Assessment will be reviewed and updated as required, taking account of consultation feedback.
