Invitation to National Childcare Scheme (NCS) Sponsored Referral Training

What is a Sponsored Referral?

An NCS sponsored referral is a special arrangement for vulnerable children and families. Certain Statutory Organisations (sponsor bodies) can refer a child for an NCS subsidy where childcare is needed on child welfare, child protection, family support or other specified grounds.

Who can attend?

 You/your staff may be aware of vulnerable children who might benefit from the NCS Sponsor Scheme through the services in which you are involved. This is an opportunity to find out more about how the sponsor process works. Each of the five sponsor bodies has its own eligibility criteria, which will be covered in this training session – for example, Túsla, HSE, Local Authorities, Department of Education & Skills and DCEDIY (Irish Refugee Protection Programme).

Training Details: Training will be delivered via Microsoft Teams

Time: 10:00 to 11.30
