Disability Access Funding (DAF) for three and four year olds

Disability access funding aids access to early years places by, for example, supporting providers in making reasonable adjustments to their provisions and/or helping with building capacity, be that for the child in question or for the benefit of children as a whole attending the provision.

Three and four year olds will be eligible for the DAF if they meet the following criteria:

  • the child is in receipt of child Disability Living Allowance (DLA) and;
  • the child receives free early education from the term after the third birthday.

 Children do not have to take up the full 570 hours of early education they are entitled to in order to receive the DAF. Children in receipt of the DAF will be eligible where they take-up any period of free entitlement, but the DAF can only be paid to one provider during the financial year.

 Please note that four-year olds in primary school reception classes are not eligible for DAF funding.

Your early years provider will be able to confirm to you if your DAF claim is eligible and how they will use the DAF funding to support your child.

Your UTR is on notices to file a tax return or payment reminders sent to you by HM Revenue and Customs. Look for a 10-digit number, sometimes with a letter 'K' on the end. It's sometimes just called 'tax reference'.
  • the date you started, or are due to start work
  • details of any other government support you get
