Furthermore, four new councils have signed up to deliver 30 hours childcare offer early, from this April, before it is rolled-out nationally from September.</p><p> </p><p>Childminders are a valuable part of the childcare sector and we want to see them play a full role in delivering the 30 hours childcare entitlement. There were 44,000 childminders registered with Ofsted as at 31 December 2016. The total number fell by 700 (1.6%) in the period, but this is a smaller fall than the 3.5% (1,600) in the previous period from August to December 2016. We are pleased that the fall in numbers has slowed, although there is clearly more to do.</p><p> </p><p>In our Early Implementer areas, providers have been able to meet the parental demand for 30 hours, with many childminders working in partnership with other providers to deliver a seamless flexible offer.</p>

industry and groups supporting bereaved people about Social Fund Funeral Expenses Payments and in particular the maximum amount of £700 available for other costs. We have made clear that we will ensure that Funeral Expenses Payments continue to meet the necessary costs of a cremation or burial for eligible claimants. Average payments have increased year-on-year to meet these necessary costs. We have had to make difficult choices about welfare spending and it has not been possible to increase the £700 maximum for other costs. However, we have made interest-free Social Fund Budgeting Loans available for funeral costs in addition to Funeral Expenses Payments.</ins></p><p><ins class="ministerial"> </ins></p><p><ins class="ministerial">We have also been carrying out reforms to the Funeral Expenses Payments Regulations which are coming into force in April 2018. The reforms focused primarily on clarifying a number of issues around eligibility and to simplify the process for claiming a Funeral Expenses Payment. The formal response to the consultation on the Reform of the Funeral Expenses Payment Regulations was published on 3 July 2017 and can be found at <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/656887/consultation-response-reforms-to-funeral-expenses-payments.pdf" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/656887/consultation-response-reforms-to-funeral-expenses-payments.pdf</a>.</ins></p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p>
