School uniform grants: apply now!

The 2018 School Uniform Grants programme is now available.

You can find an application form below. Please ensure UNISON receives this by 20 July 2018.

Families on low incomes can struggle to make ends meet, especially just before the start of the new school year in September. UNISON’s scheme helps members on low incomes deal with the cost of school uniforms.

One-off grants are available to low-paid UNISON members of £40 per child up to a maximum of £120 per household.

You will be eligible if you are either on housing benefit or have a total net household income of less than £18,000.

At the foot of this page you can find an application form, poster and question and answer sheet with more details on who is eligible for the grants, the value of each grant and other important information.

Please read the Q&A sheet before you download, print-off and complete the application form.
