Early Years and Early Action Fund

Date: 15th June 2011

Inspiring Scotland has announced that the Early Years Early Action Fund is now open to applications. The aim of the Early Years Early Action Fund is to improve the outcomes for vulnerable young children, to help them achieve their potential.

The fund is open to charities that operate on a national level and those that deliver front-line services in more than one local authority area, to enable them to improve early years services covering parenting, play, childcare, child and maternal health and family support, with the aim of helping parents and communities build better lives for themselves and their children and provide earlier support for families to prevent problems escalating into costly and difficult crisis situations, as well as supporting health improvement and helping looked after children.

The deadline for applications is the 15th July 2011. Organisations who have not yet registered their interest and are interested in applying for funding should click here to register their interest as soon as possible.
