UNISON: School Uniform Grants Programme 2017UNISON is once more launching a scheme to help members on low incomes deal with the cost of school uniforms.
Families with children living on a low income struggle constantly to make ends meet – and this can be particularly acute before the new school year begins when those extra costs hit hard.
If you have children in full time education, you may be eligible to receive a school uniform grant from UNISON’s charity There for You. To be considered, you must either be:
- In receipt of Housing Benefit; or
- Your net annual income is £18,000 or below [Note: We ignore the following income Child benefit, any childcare element included as part of your working tax credits, Disability Living Allowance, Personal Independence Payment].
