CCSR (Transitional)

 

The CCSR(T) provision provides subvention for all pre-school children of families experiencing homelessness 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.

The eligibility of the applying parent is determined by Focus Ireland (if in the Dublin area)/Local Authority (if outside of Dublin). A verification letter from Focus Ireland or from their Local Authority is required.

CCSR(T) services will only offer childcare places for the following session types:
-    Part-time places (between 3 hours 31 minutes and 5 hours per day)
-    Sessional places (between 2 hours 16 minutes and 3 hours 30 minutes per day)

A different payment rate is attributed to each type of placement.
•    For part-time childcare over 5 days per week, a flat rate of €160 per week, will be paid in relation to each child attending under CCSR(T), for the eligible duration of their childcare place. A daily meal must be provided for each child, the cost of which is included in the subvention rate.
•    For sessional childcare over 5 days per week, a rate of €87.50 will be paid in relation to each child attending for the eligible duration of their childcare place.  A daily meal is also to be provided for each child, the cost of which is included in the subvention rate.
