Just been granted DLA for dd, which should result in me getting carers for her (just applied awaiting outcome). If the carers allowance comes through, can I then get 30hrs preschool (FEEE) for DS? Without carers I don't earn enough to qualify, DH is earning enough.
My DD gets free 2-year funding because she's get DLA. DWP referred straight to LA who contacted me so can't see why this wouldn't extend to pre-school 30 hours. Contact SEN department at local authority who should give some more accurate advice.
Yep - if your partner works and you get CA, your child is entitled to the 30 hours. When I applied, there was some sort of glitch on the website, suggesting that I wasn’t entitled because CA is below the earning threshold - hopefully this has been fixed by now - but I called the helpline and they processed my application down the phone instead.
