Need extra support to find childcare?
Some parents need a helping hand to find the right care for their child. This could be for many reasons, perhaps your child has a disability.

Children who have complex disabilities, aged between birth and three years old, may be entitled to receive our support to arrange and coordinate services across health and education as well as to access their free entitlement to early learning.
