Which benefit do you receive?

Families receiving the following benefits will be eligible for the free childcare for 2 year olds from 1st September 2014. However, we would still like you to apply to the scheme now as this will give you time to be assessed as eligible and find a suitable childcare place before your child is eligible in September

I agree that Torbay Council can use the information I have provided to process my claim for a free childcare place and can contact other sources as allowed by law to verify my initial and continuing entitlement.
