Core Funding: Quality Planning Template

Core Funding supports Partner Services with financial sustainability while enhancing their services’ quality, affordability and accessibility. In accordance with Partnership for the Public Good (DCEDIY 2021), the new Core Funding model commits to driving high-quality service provision. To support this, Core Funding requires all early learning and care (ELC), school-age childcare (SAC) and childminding services that benefit from Core Funding to complete a quality planning template, using tools provided here, to compile their Core Funding Quality Action Plan.
