Childcare for Vulnerable Children

Vulnerable children include those with a social worker and with Statements of special educational needs, including children with care and support or support plans, children on the child protection register and children who are looked after. We will prioritise the vulnerable children most in need of childcare, particularly those where there is a present risk that children cannot have their basic needs met safely at home or where no safe alternative for childcare can be found.

Please contact your child’s social worker if you feel that you need help to safely care for your child at home. If your child does not have a social worker then please contact Denbighshire’s Family Information Service for advice on childcare during the restrictions on 01745 815891.

After applying for emergency childcare

If you are entitled to emergency childcare, daily booking arrangements will be organised by parents communicating directly with the chosen hub. Details of how to do this will be sent to you.

Extremely vulnerable 

People with serious underlying health conditions, which put them at very high risk of serious illness from coronavirus (COVID-19), should follow “shielding” measures to stay safe. If anyone in your houshold is classed as extremely vulnerable, you should not apply for the emergency childcare.
