Reports, Strategies and Plans 

The Vale of Glamorgan Council carried out its Childcare Sufficiency Assessment (CSA) Review, to meet the duties under the Childcare Act 2006. This required every local authority to ensure there is sufficient childcare to enable parents to work or undertake education or training in order to make the transition to work.

 

A full sufficiency assessment is required every five years with annual updates to set out how local authorities are responding to the findings of their childcare sufficiency assessments and working to meet the sufficiency duty.
