General Information

Grant funding through grant awarding agencies such as the Big Lottery Fund is normally only available to school-age childcare services which are based within the voluntary/community sector, although they do not need to be registered charities.

Private services may be eligible for funding through such agencies if they are a member of a local network which is a consituted voluntary organisation, such as a local out of school care network. As a member of the network, a private service may be eligible to receive partial funding.

Some local authorities continue to provide financial support to school-age childcare services through subsidised premises, qualifications and training.
