Childcare options: government funding to create one-stop digital solution


Up to £200,000 of government funding is available to develop a digital ‘one stop shop’ providing accurate information for parents on childcare options.

The Department for Education (DfE) and Innovate UK are offering funding to develop a website or app that helps parents find out about the many childcare options available quickly and easily.

If you have an idea that could offer a ‘one stop shop’ solution you can apply to win a share of the £200,000 available. The solution should:

  • enable parents to make informed decisions about what childcare is best for their children, taking into account a wide range of factors
  • be easy to use
  • provide timely, accurate data
