Have your say on our current consultations.
Early Years Consultation 2017
The consultation is in response to a Scottish Government policy to raise early learning and childcare entitlement from 600 hours to 1140 hours a year by 2020
for eligible two year olds, and for all three and four year olds. The overall objectives are to improve outcomes for children, maintain high quality early
learning and childcare provision, and to provide more flexibility for parents who wish to work, train or study.
Early learning and childcare will only be made available from a registered provider that meets the new Quality Standards. This may be provided either through
a local authority early years centre, private nursery, playgroup, and / or child minder.
The Early Years consultation takes place between Monday 12 June and Monday 26 June. The results of the consultation will be used to plan for the future
expansion of early learning and childcare across South Ayrshire.
Parents and carers can have their say online by using this brief online survey. Alternatively, for more
information or to request the survey in another format contact South Ayrshire Council on 0300 123 0900 and ask for details on the Early Years Consultation.
The Participation and Engagement strategy sets out how South Ayrshire Health and Social Care Partnership will work together for the best possible
health and wellbeing of communities across South Ayrshire by encouraging community participation.

Housing plays a vital part in all our lives. Having somewhere to stay that is safe and warm is one of the most basic needs we
have. Without good housing, improvements in other important aspects of life, such as health, education and community are more
difficult if not impossible to achieve. South Ayrshire Council is committed to ensuring as far as possible that people are able to
access good quality, affordable housing that meets their needs and their circumstances. We want your views on housing in South
