Core Funding supports Partner Services with their financial sustainability while enhancing the quality, affordability and accessibility of their services. In accordance with Partnership for the Public Good, (DCEDIY 2021) the new Core Funding model commits to drive high-quality service provision. To support this, Core Funding requires all early learning and care (ELC), school-age childcare (SAC) and childminding services that benefit from Core Funding to complete a quality planning template, using tools provided here, to compile their Core Funding Quality Action Plan.
See Guidelines for Completing the Core Funding Quality Action Plan Template and the FAQ document.
When you have read through the supporting documentations and have chosen the quality actions you wish to take, click the following link to access the template: https://forms.office.com/r/nw0PMGh8JK
Having submitted your response please remember to PRINT and SAVE your Quality Action Plan as a PDF before closing out of the template. The closing date for submission is Friday 2nd December 2022.
