Early years vulnerable family scheme
The Early Years Vulnerable Children (EYVF) funding provides vulnerable children aged 6 months to five years with a funded place within a Children’s Centre, Quality Assured childminder, maintained nursery/nursery class or in a private, voluntary and independent setting that participates on the scheme.
EYVF eligibility criteria:
There needs to be a pre-existing Social Work Single Assessment for the family with childcare identified as intervention to support the family. The EYVF funding must support preventing family breakdown, due to a crisis in the family (for example, due to domestic abuse, parental mental illness, ill health or substance misuse). Support around the child having on-going special needs should be considered as part of their EHCP Plan and if necessary supported by Inclusion funding.
