Early Intervention Funding: End of Year Evaluation

Closed 3 May 2021

Opened 19 Apr 2021


In April 2020, Early Intervention Funding (EIF) replaced the previous Inclusion Grant Funding and Discretionary Funding.

EIF is a supplement of Early Years Funded Entitlement and provides financial support to Early Years providers to help them meet the needs of children aged 2, 3 and 4 who are experiencing barriers to learning.

Why we are consulting

As we have now completed the first year under the new funding model, we would like to take this opportunity to consult with multi-disciplinary professionals including settings to understand what has worked well and what could be done better.

We will use this survey to gather your views and the data will enable us to improve processes and evaluate the effectiveness of the funding.

The survey will take approximately 10 minutes to complete. 

Please note that the information you share will only be used internally for the purpose of this consultation, and will not be shared externally.
