Disability Access Funding (DAF)
Disability Access Funding (DAF) is available for 3 and 4 year olds who are in receipt of Disability Living Allowance and accessing some or all of their Early Years Funding. An annual allocation of £615 is available each year for a child regardless of how many hours they attend.
Please note that from 1st April 2020, all DAF applications will have to be made via the Provider Portal.
The application form has been updated and can be sent via email to parents for completion and returned electronically rather than keeping paper copies, if you prefer. If the child is attending more than one setting the parents will only apply at the setting they wish to receive the DAF funding.
If you wish to claim DAF for a new child this term you will need to submit your claim before 31st August 2020 via the Provider Portal.
Please access the Disability Access Funding module and “Create a new Disability Access Funding Application”. You can search or add a child and will need to attach the Application and DLA Award Letter for funding to be allocated. If the application is approved, payments will be made with termly Headcount and Amendment payments and will be listed on your Payment Breakdown Report.
