Early Years Action Fund

Minister launches Early Years and Early Action Fund
Earlier this week  Scottish Children’s Minister Adam Ingram MSP launched a £6.8million early years and early action fund, inviting national voluntary organisations to bid for a share in order to improve and enhance their early years work.
Administered by Inspiring Scotland, the fund is intended to enable the improvement of early years services around parenting, play, childcare, child and maternal health and family support as well as facilitate the provision of earlier support for families to prevent problems escalating into costly and difficult crisis situations. It will also fund work around health improvement and supporting looked after children.
