Wraparound childcare: 2013-15

Browse our Dismantle the Barriers guide and case studies, which support schools to develop wraparound childcare (particularly for 8-14 year olds).

The Family and Childcare Trust has evaluated Family Action's Childcare in Schools project (2013-2015). Find the report here.

Download some business planning templates used during the project.

National School Breakfast Programme

Our new National School Breakfast Programme, in partnership with Magic Breakfast and funded by the Department of Education is working to support over 1770 schools in disadvantaged communities across the country to improve access to healthy breakfasts and learning.

If your school might like to explore the benefit of removing the hunger barrier to learning for all your pupils, please complete an Expression of Interest form.

Inclusion: 2015-16

Family Action was funded by the Department for Education in 2015-16 to support early years settings to develop inclusive school-based childcare provision for 0-5s with special educational needs and disabilities.

Adoption support: 2016-18

Working in partnership with Lincolnshire County Council and the East Midlands Regional Adoption Agency, our DfE-funded East Midlands Adoption Support Service (EMASS) aimed to improve outcomes for adopted children and their families.
