  • We were commissioned by Welsh Government to review the existing Early Years Pupil Deprivation Grant (EYPDG) allocation mechanism and make recommendations as to whether the current approach could be practicably improved.

    In undertaking the review we considered the:

    • suitability of the current method for allocating the grant;
    • examined the approach adopted in other countries for funding this type of support and considered their suitability in the Welsh context; and
    • considered some potential alternative approaches in detail, including providing a picture of what the allocation might look like; and
    • sought the views of local authorities and learning settings.

    Our review has not identified any fundamental issues with the current allocation method for EYPDG. However, we have identified a small number of potential improvements to the current approach.

    A data catalogue in support of the SSIA Population Assessment Toolkit is now available.

    The Data Unit, on behalf of the Social Services Improvement Agency (SSIA), have released a data catalogue as part of the Population Assessment Toolkit being developed to assist local authorities and local health boards with their statutory requirements under the Social Services and Well-being (Wales) Act 2014.

    The catalogue offers users a range of available data that may be useful in developing their population assessments, whilst recognising that needs will vary between areas.

    The catalogue has been developed in conjunction with partners in local authorities and local health boards. Wider stakeholders were also given an opportunity to feedback on the data catalogue, and this feedback has been taken into consideration.

    SSIA plan to release the Toolkit by April 2016.
