The purpose of the Disability Access Fund (DAF) is to help children with special educational needs or disabilities (SENDs) to find places in Early Education settings.
3 and 4 year olds are eligible for the DAF if they:
- are in receipt of disability living allowance (DLA) and;
- receive free early education.
The setting they attend will be entitled to receive £615 per year to provide ongoing support for the child.
Please see the document under 'Downloads' for more information and for an interim declaration form for parents and carers.
