Are you eligible? Flying Start is a Welsh Government funded Programme and is available in targeted areas supporting families to give 0-3 year olds a Flying Start in life.
Families can now check if they are eligible and apply for a place on the Powys County Council website.
The Flying Start scheme provides intensive support services for children aged 0-3 years old and their families. Help includes:
• Part-time funded childcare for 2 year olds
• An enhanced Health Visiting service
• Access to parenting programmes
• Support for children to learn to talk and communicate
This is really positive for families wishing to access support in securing their ‘Flying Start’ offer. By inputting a Powys postcode families can check if they are eligible. They can then benefit directly from activities, group sessions and additional childcare offerings, available within this Welsh Government scheme.
Flying Start formalises the basis of a positive flying start for children, within the first years of their lives and gives families a form of early help in order to achieve this. Professionals from across agencies work together to offer this support and guidance to meet the needs of the Flying Start families.Cllr Rachel Powell, Cabinet Member for Children and Culture
