Summary of consultation responses, the main findings and the government’s response outlining the next steps to be taken.
In September 2019, the government extended eligibility for this entitlement to 2-year-old children from 3 groups of families and, in September 2020, extended the entitlement to a fourth group of families who have no recourse to public funds (NRPF).
This consultation seeks views on:
whether there are other groups of families with NRPF besides those identified in the consultation who should be eligible for the entitlement
the possible impact of any extension on people who share protected characteristics
