Cabinet has endorsed the guidance note for the National Early Childhood Care Services Policy and Regulatory Framework.

Prime Minister Sitiveni Rabuka says the guidance note is an outcome of the Co-operation Agreement between the International Finance Corporation and the Ministry for Women, Children and Poverty Alleviation.

He says the guidance note will form the basis for public consultations with focused collaboration with stakeholders for the development of a National Early Childhood Care Policy and Regulatory Framework.

Cabinet was also informed of the technical review of the social assistance programmes by the Department of Social Welfare.

Rabuka says the technical review is being conducted by the Ministry for Women, Children and Poverty Alleviation, in collaboration with the Australian Government through its flagship social protection programme, the Partnerships for Social Protection Programme.

The review will assess the six key social assistance schemes namely, the Poverty Benefit Scheme, the Social Pension Scheme, Care & Protection Scheme, Disability Allowance Scheme, Bus-fare Concession programme, and Expanded Food Voucher for Rural Pregnant Mothers.
