Special Guardianship Orders

Children that are under a Special Guardianship Order or who have been adopted, are eligible for two-year-old funding. Providers need evidence of the Special Guardianship Order or adoption to enable our funding team to pay the two-year-old funding. Simply contact the helpdesk eyef@devon.gov.uk  if you have a child booking in with you or already in attendance.

Some families may also be eligible for the extended entitlement from the start of the term following their third birthday. Please encourage all guardians and adopters, who think they may be eligible, to apply through the HMRC as they may be able to access 1140 hours of funded provision a year.

Devon County Council does not hold a list of these children – we need providers to identify them so a claim can be made and the children can access the provision to which they are entitled.
