Early years provision & growth capital


High quality early years provision can have significant impact on the future educational attainment of children from disadvantaged backgrounds.

Potential social investment solution

The number of free hours of childcare available  to working parents is doubling to 30 hours/week from September 2017, which could lead to increased demand, especially in disadvantaged areas. Social investment could play a role in helping social sector providers expand their capacity to meet this anticipated demand.

Who we would like to work with

Not-for-profit & social enterprise early years providers with an interest in growing their provision in disadvantaged areas through the use of social investment.
