New criteria for funded childcare

Posted: 03.03.14 in Latest News category

As of 22nd April this year the eligibility for free childcare for 2 year olds is being widened to include families receiving working tax credits but with an annual income of no more than £16,190 per year.

This means many families who could not previously access the free childcare will now be entitled to up to 15 hours childcare per week.

To check your eligibility please call the free childcare phone line on 01670 623592 or visit www.northumberland.gov.uk/freechildcare. For more help and further information please call in the office and see Ailsa or Pauline.

If you know any families that may benefit from these new criteria then please get them to contact Brambles on 01665 710453 and we will do our best to help.
