Budget 2015: Scott Morrison announces extra childcare money for at-risk children

Latest News | May 08, 2015

Labor has said it will not pass budget savings the Government insists are needed to fund a new childcare proposal directing $850 million to childcare for disadvantaged families, children considered at risk and those living in regional or remote parts of Australia.

Of that amount, $327 million would be additional funding, while the remaining money would be re-directed from existing programs.

Social Services Minister Scott Morrison told the ABC’s 7.30 program the money would be aimed at struggling families, communities and children vulnerable to abuse.
