star this property answer text <p>In 2018, we announced a programme of work to explore ways of supporting disadvantaged families during school holidays.</p><p>We received 94 applications for funding from organisations across the country for a share of £2 million. Following a 2-stage competitive bid assessment process, we awarded funding to the 7 highest scoring organisations: Feeding Britain, Family Action, Street Games UK, On Side Youth Zones, Children North East, Birmingham Holiday Kitchen and TLG. The 87 unsuccessful organisations were notified and offered feedback on their application.</p><p>Building on the 2018 programme we quadrupled funding and strengthened the programme to encourage co-ordination in local communities so that even more disadvantaged children can benefit.</p><p>Applications were invited from organisations to act as a coordinator in a specific local authority area. We received 92 applications and selected 11 for funding, including at least one in each of the 9 English regions. As with 2018, unsuccessful bidders were all notified and feedback was offered.</p><p>The purpose of this programme is to allow us to gather more evidence about the scale of the issue, the most effective ways of tackling it, and the costs and burdens associated with doing so. As a result, we will be able to make an evidence-based decision about whether and how we should intervene in the longer term.</p>

In the meantime, we are clear that allowing reasonable contact between looked-after children and their siblings is absolutely right where this is in the best interests of the children involved and the Children Act (1989) already provides for this.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>We are keen for funding allocated through the schools’ block to be passed on to schools, which is why as part of the introduction of the national funding formula (NFF), we made the decision to ring-fence this funding from 2018-19 onwards. However, in recognition of the importance of local flexibility, we have allowed local authorities to transfer of up to 0.5% out of the schools funding block of the dedicated schools grant to the high needs funding block, with the agreement of their schools forum. We produced an equalities impact assessment alongside the NFF, which considered potential impacts on children with protected characteristics, which can be accessed at: <a href="https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/648520/NFF_Equalities_Impact-Assessment.pdf" target="_blank">https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/648520/NFF_Equalities_Impact-Assessment.pdf</a>.</p><p>Exceptionally, local authorities can apply for transfers outside these rules. Within the schools revenue funding operational guide (paragraph 138): <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/pre-16-schools-funding-guidance-for-2019-to-2020" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/pre-16-schools-funding-guidance-for-2019-to-2020</a>, we set out what evidence we expect a local authority to present to their schools forum to support any proposals to transfer funding from the schools block.</p><p>In submitting an exceptional case to transfer funding from the schools block, local authorities have to carry out an assessment of the equalities implications of their proposal. These equalities assessments, the published equalities impact assessment (link above) and the quality of the evidence provided by local authorities are all taken into account in the evaluation of exceptional cases put forward by local authorities.</p><p> </p>
