Parents and carers - 2, 3 and 4 year old Early Education funding

Disability Access Funding ( DAF)

Additional funding for children with Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND)

What is Disability Access Funding (DAF)?

Additional funding paid directly to Early Year’s Providers (including schools), to support children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND), aged 3 or 4, who are in receipt of Disability Living Allowance (DLA) and accessing some or all, of their Early Education Entitlement. 

DAF is a payment of £615 per year, for each eligible child - so it is essential that you claim as soon as possible, as some children will be eligible for a second payment, one year later.

The payment facilitates providers to make reasonable adjustments to support children with SEND, including accessing training, purchasing resources, fund additional sessions etc.
