Coronavirus Childcare Assistance Scheme (C-CAS)
C-CAS has closed to new entrants on 12th July (the only exception being vulnerable children). It will be ending to existing applicants on August 31 and those parents should prepare to make alternative childcare arrangements after this date.
The Childcare Offer
In response to COVID-19 the Welsh Government suspended the Childcare Offer to new entrants in April in order to fund childcare for critical workers through the Coronavirus – Childcare Assistance Scheme (C-CAS). The only children currently in receipt of the Childcare Offer are those who were in receipt of the Offer prior to the Easter Holidays. All applications after this date were suspended due to the funding being diverted for C-CAS.
As lockdown begins to lift and the C-CAS scheme finishes, the Welsh Government are looking to reinstate the Childcare Offer. Further information will be published as soon as we have an update from Welsh Government. An announcement is expected in the coming weeks.
Any concerns you have regarding the Offer should be made to Welsh Government. You can contact them by e-mail TalkChildcare@gov.wales.
