What is Portage?

If you suspect a child between 0 to 3 years old is significantly delayed in at least two areas of their development, parents and professionals can apply for Portage. Generally we cannot offer funding support to children above 3 years old, unless they are not currently attending Pre-school/Nursery.

Portage is an Early Intervention programme that supports children within their own home, working in partnership with parents and carers.
