The following extract below states.

http://data.parliament.uk/DepositedPapers/Files/DEP2021-0349/27_Childcare_costs_v20_0.pdf

‘Deposits and upfront fees
Claimants may receive help with eligible deposits and upfront fees and these are
treated in the same way as childcare costs for standard fees. Budgeting
Advances and the Flexible Support Fund can also be used but to support
claimants with deposits and upfront childcare costs.
Where a claimant has already received help for a deposit and upfront fees
through other DWP support, for example the Flexible Support Fund, these
childcare costs can’t be claimed back’.

Couldn’t find anything in to confirm the above re: budgeting advances and FSF’s CPAG - looked at Chapter 5 pages 73 - 75 and 867 re: childcare costs element and FSF too. Similarly the legislation Regs 31 - 35 UC regs 2013 SSL Vol V UC pages 204 - 210.

Can anyone shed any light on the above please.
