Dear Service Provider,
On behalf of Pobal and the DCEDIY, we would like to thank all those who have submitted the Annual Early Years Sector Profile survey. For services who have not yet completed it, this is a reminder that the deadline is today Wednesday 4 May.
The Sector Profile is a very important information source for the DCEDIY and the sector more widely. Your contribution ensures that they have accurate data to inform policy, planning and investment over the coming years.
Please also be advised that completion of the Sector Profile is a necessary requirement in order to access Core Funding later this year when applications open in June. In order to access Core Funding, you must have completed the Sector Profile. It is also possible to complete the Sector Profile and choose not to sign-up for Core Funding.
Below is a useful infographic highlighting some tips for starting and completing the Sector Profile survey for your service:
