Budget 2017: Q & A on the Affordable Childcare Scheme – DCYA

dcyalogoThe Minister for Children and Youth Affairs, Dr Katherine Zappone, has announced that a 15% increase in funding has been secured for services to support children, young people and families in Budget 2017.

Announcing additional funding of €173m, bringing the total funding of her Department to over €1.3 billion Minister Zappone said:

“Budget 2017 has paved the way for a radical new approach to childcare, extra community youth services across the country and better funded supports for young people and families who need it most.

Since taking office I have prioritised the need to tackle child poverty. Today we have re-enforced that work by announcing a budget package which will deliver real change and benefit children and families every day.

In the coming 12-months I look forward to continuing my work with young people, parents and frontline services to ensure the money which has been secured will be used to deliver the best possible outcomes for all.”
