The funding will provide up to £30 million for each year in 2013-14 and 2014-15 and projects will contribute to policy thinking and delivery on the ground to:

  • promote excellence in early education and childcare, so enabling all children to achieve success in their early years and later education;
  • develop and reform services that support children with SEN, disabilities and other health needs;
  • develop and reform safeguarding services that protect and support children at risk of harm;
  • develop and reform the care system and speed up the process of adoption; and
