Funding for SEN Support

1. SEN funding in early years settings

Nurseries and childminders can apply for extra funding for up to 15 hours per week to help them meet the needs of children with special educational needs, disabilities or complex medical needs. This is called the Early Years Inclusion Support Fund (EYISF). The nursery or childminder should send the EYISF application form to the ISEND Early Years’ Service who will assess the child to see if they need extra funding.
