    After speaking with SFE I was told my application was 2 days away from being completely processed.However after speaking with them today I’ve been told it will be another 9 working days as my application has automatically been put forward for a childcare grant (I have 4 children) but deliberately did not apply for the grant so as to speed my application up.I’m slightly annoyed as I really need to know if my application has been approved!Is this standard procedure to automatically put someone forward?!Laura

    Hi Shurmee89,

    I can definitely appreciate your frustration about the longer processing time. If you've indicated on your application that you have any dependents, it is standard procedure that the application has to be reviewed the Grants for dependents department (GFD) before being approved.

    Unfortunately, it will have to be assessed by the GFD team before being approved, however, I would recommend writing a short cover letter to say you don't want any grants for dependents, this means that it will be taken out of that department and if you need to update anything in future, they won't have to review it.

    Kind regards,

    John.
