Childcare Sufficiency Assessment

The Childcare Act (2006) requires local authorities to take reasonable steps to ensure sufficient childcare so that families can work or train. To understand how well childcare matches families' needs a Childcare Sufficiency Assessment (CSA) process is undertaken by the Local Authority.
The Childcare Act 2006 states that:

A full Childcare Sufficiency Assessment is carried out once every three years with an update report produced annually. It should be noted that the childcare market is dynamic and changes can happen over a short period of time. This report presents a snapshot in time and as more data and information becomes available the childcare market is managed locally on an ongoing basis.

The 2017 Childcare Sufficiency Assessment is in the form of an annual update report.
