Impact of National Childcare Scheme (NCS)

Many thanks to Claudia Dalby of the Dublin Inquirer for today's article on the impact of National Childcare Scheme (NCS) on services in the South West Inner City.
The NCS is a new funding model for early years and afterschool services which, in it's current form, will result in the inevitable closure of several afterschool services across inner city areas who serve children from already under-served communities.
In the face of this threat several D8 providers including Robert Emmet have come together to represent concerns to elected representatives and department officials. Please make contact if you would like to know more about how the NCS will impact your community or for more information on our campaign.
