Find out about the Transitional Support Fund for childcare providers.
The Transitional Support Fund will help childcare providers in the private, voluntary and not for profit sectors, including out of school care providers, meet the extra costs incurred to comply with public health guidance in response to Covid-19.
The fund will provide one-off grants to eligible childcare settings.
To be eligible you need to be registered with the Care Inspectorate as being:
- a 'day care of children' service
- a 'private' or 'voluntary or not for profit' service
This includes private, voluntary and not for profit settings delivering out of school care, childcare in independent schools and outdoor childcare.
You'll also need to confirm that your setting has already reopened or confirm that you'll have reopened by Monday 7 September.
The Transitional Support Fund will open for applications on Thursday 3 September 2020.
The deadline for submitting a grant application is Friday 9 October 2020.
