Childcare affordability pilot schemes: funding disabled children

A report looking at whether providing more childcare support acts as an incentive for parents of disabled children to move into work.



The disabled children pilot was one of 3 childcare affordability pilots (CAP09). It offered to pay families with disabled children the standard 80% of childcare support, plus payment up to higher limits than under the current tax credits system.

The childcare affordability pilots 2009 were set up to assess the effect of providing alternative forms of childcare support to families moving into work.
