Best start in life

How will the well-being objective be financed?

To achieve this objective, we need to ensure appropriate investment in the early years and through our community resources such as Integrated Children’s Centres and Family Centres.

The Children & Communities Grant helps to improve and integrate service delivery to better support vulnerable families and people across Wales. This grant incorporates the Flying Start and Families First grants which has Welsh Government Revenue funding of £5.1m in 2021/22.

We will also continue to invest the childcare care offer capital grant of £3m we were initially awarded in 2019/20, in addition to the annual award of £67k for 2021/22 to facilitate the provision of up to 30 hours of high-quality childcare for children of working parents across the county.
