Two Year Old Funding - Inclusion Funding
Providers can apply for funding to help pay for a 1:1 support worker for a two year old funded child with special needs or a disability. Please note that with the planned increase in two year old funded places, this additional 1:1 funding is currently being reviewed. As the budget in this financial year is limited, providers should check eligibility and availability of funding before making an application.
