What is the Disability Access Fund?


In April 2017 the Disability Access Fund (DAF) was introduced in order to support children who have special educational needs and disabilities to access the same childcare entitlements of all three and four-year-old children. It is set within the context of the 2010 Equality Act which requires local authorities and providers not to discriminate, harass or victimise disabled children.

Providers can receive £615 in a one-off DAF payment per eligible child per academic year.
