Service Support December 2013

The Consortium has been supporting women’s centres and groups around the implementation of the minimum standards for childcare. The consortium is collecting & collating information and statistics for the Women's Centre Childcare Fund (WCCF) groups and will liaise with DSD/VCU and other government departments to ensure the sustainability of childcare services for women in Disadvantaged and Rural Areas beyond 2015. A meeting has already taken place with WCCF groups at the WSN to discuss responses to a number of government consultations.
