Community Childcare Subvention Resettlement (Transitional) (CCSR(T))
As part of the “Rebuilding Ireland – an Action Plan for Housing and Homelessness”, DCYA launched a special provision under the current Community Childcare Subvention Programme, entitled CCSR (Transitional), which provides access to free childcare for children of families experiencing homelessness.
The provision provides subvention for all pre-school children aged 0 to 5 inclusive and 6 to 12 year olds during the school holidays only. The scheme is also designed to help those transitioning from homelessness to permanent accommodation.
CCSRT is available through all services participating in the CCSP programme.
A hot meal is included on each day a child is participating in CCSR (T).
Eligibility for CCSR(T) Participating pre-school going children must be between 0 – 5yrs on their start date and school-aged children between 6 and 12 years are eligible during school holiday periods only.
The eligibility of the applying parent/guardian is determined in Kildare by Kildare County Council (once a family is declared homeless they are eligible).
