Childcare funding formula miss the mark on redistribution

Please see the Analysis by Fact which looks at how funding will change for local authorities and providers after the transitional period to understand the long-term impact of the proposals.

Fact’s response to the government's consultation on the proposal was "There is no correlation between gaps in the provision of free early education and the proposed redistribution of funding. Some local authorities with serious sufficiency problems such as those in central London will lose a significant amount of funding, while others with high take-up of the free offer will benefit significantly. We have proposed a stronger link between future funding allocations and sufficiency problems."
