The Disability Access Funding (DAF) is funding for early years providers to support children with disabilities or special educational needs. It aids access to early years places by supporting providers in making reasonable adjustments to their settings.
Providers taking three- and four-year-olds that are eligible for the Disability Access Funding will be entitled to receive a one-off payment of up to £615 per year. The Disability Access Funding is not based on an hourly rate and is an additional entitlement.
Children do not have to take up the full 570 hours of early education they are entitled to in order to receive the Disability Access Funding. Children in receipt of the Disability Access Funding will be eligible when they take-up any period of funded entitlement.
