Claire Protheroe, National Manager for Wales for PACEY Cymru gave evidence to the Welsh Assembly's Children, Young People and Education Committee at the Senedd on the Childcare Funding (Wales) Bill which looks at the mechanism of using HMRC to check eligibility for parents/carers looking to access Childcare Offer funding in Wales. Claire was part of a panel made up of Cwlwm partners to share their views and respond to questioning from Assembly Members (AM's) on the Bill
This Bill was specifically around the eligibility model but PACEY Cymru and Cwlwm partners used the consultation and the session to raise other areas of interest linked to the Childcare Offer for Wales including the current issues facing registered childminders around accessing funded for related children.
You can view the evidence session through Senedd TV PACEY Cymru and Cwlwm can be seen in evidence session 3.
