Childcare Sector Sustainability Grant

Stockton-on-Tees Borough Council has established a sustainability grant to support the childcare sector. The aim of the grant is to support settings and childminders who are at risk of closure due to a reduction in demand caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. 

For the autumn term the grant is open to all settings and childminders who are at risk of immediate closure due to a reduction in places due to Covid-19 but expect numbers to increase by the October half-term. Funding is available for the period from 1 September to 22 October. Please note funding is limited and will be awarded to settings and childminders at most risk and in an area where it would impact on sufficiency of places.

To apply for the grant please email [email protected] who will forward you an application pack.
